Retired heavyweight Boxing Champion Smoking Joe Frazier lost his fight last night with liver cancer.
The 67-year-old Frazier, who was in hospice care, died last night after being diagnosed with liver cancer in October, Darren Prince, a spokesman for the Frazier family, confirmed in an e-mail.
Muhammad Ali, who was beaten by Frazier in “The Fight Of The Century” and forever indebted to Frazier for keeping him afloat during his draft dodging ordeal with the U.S. government, released a statement to ESPN saying,
“The world has lost a great champion. I will always remember Joe with respect and admiration. My sympathy goes out to his family and loved ones.”

“Michael Jordan is probably the greatest scorer to ever play the game. I may go so far as saying LeBron James may be the greatest player to ever play the game.”
According to James however, while flattering—the statement’s simply not true.
He tells Miami’s The Sun Sentinel,
“Michael’s an unbelievable player. I’ve got a long way—long way—to be mentioned as far as one of the all-time greats. Not even just Jordan. There’s a lot of great players who have played in this league. Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, all these guys who are floating around with multiple rings, Bill Russell, all these guys who have pioneered this game.”
“I’m gracious. Humbled by Scottie’s comments, especially with him being a teammate of his and seeing Michael on a day-to-day basis. But as far as me, I’m not going to sit here and say I’m better than Jordan. I’m not better than Jordan.”

Standing beside his attorney, Rose pleaded guilty in district court in Bloomfield Hills to operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
He faces up to 93 days in a jail, a $500 fine and court costs when he’s sentenced July 27.
Rose was arrested March 11 in neighboring West Bloomfield Township. Despite what an officer described as an odor of intoxicants on Rose’s breath and slightly blood shot eyes, Rose told police that night he didn’t have a drink and that he doesn’t drink.
However, the story was different one before Judge Kimberly Small, who asked Rose how many drinks he had leading up to the crash.
“I’m embarrassed to say I had six drinks that evening.”
