    Reports from America say former world heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier has died after a battle with liver cancer.

    News of the 67-year-old's illness was only released on the weekend, with confirmation he under hospice care.

    Smokin' Joe was diagnosed four or five weeks ago, Frazier's personal and business manager Leslie Wolff said on Saturday.

    Frazier was the first man to beat Muhammad Ali, knocking him down and taking a decision in the so-called Fight of the Century in 1971.

    He would go on to lose two more fights to Ali, including the epic `Thrilla in Manila', as well as taking a severe beating from George Foreman in Kinston, Jamaica.

    Frazier was bitter for many years about the way Ali treated him then, although more recently, he said he had forgiven Ali for repeatedly taunting him.

    Frazier was a small yet ferocious fighter who smothered his opponents with punches, including a devastating left hook he used to end many of his fights early.

    It was the left hook that dropped Ali in the 15th round of their first fight at Madison Square Garden in 1971 to seal a win in a bout where each fighter earned an unheard of $US2.5 million ($A2.41 million).

    While that fight is celebrated in boxing lore, Ali and Frazier put on an even better show in their third fight, held in a sweltering arena in Manila as part of Ali's world tour of fights in 1975.

    Nearly blinded by Ali's punches, Frazier still wanted to go out for the 15th round of the fight but was held back by trainer Eddie Futch in a bout Ali would later say was the closest thing to death he could imagine.

    Frazier won the heavyweight title in 1970 by stopping Jimmy Ellis in the fifth round of their fight at Madison Square Garden.

    He defended it successfully four times before Foreman knocked him down six times in the first two rounds to take the title from him in 1973.

    Frazier would never be heavyweight champion again.

    Frazier beat the shit out of Ali in their first fight. What a left hook.

    And the thrilla in manilla was a fucking war. Boxing just isn't the same today.

    Inspektah Deck was posted 'cause he has a line in the song "Protect Ya Neck" about him in the Wu-Tang Clan. So don't ban him at least.

    Why did Joe steal George Foreman's grill? That's not right.
