Muhammad Ali Says He’s Praying For Joe Frazier

Muhammad Ali says he’s praying for 67-year-old Joe Frazier who is under hospice care. Frazier was diagnosed with liver cancer about a month ago and is in a “serious situation, ” according to his agent.

“The news about Joe is hard to believe and even harder to accept. Joe has a lot of friends pulling for him – and I’m one of them,” said Ali, according to the BBC.

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

For many years, Frazier was upset at Ali for the way he treated him, taunting him, leading up to their fights. Most recently, he said has forgiven him.
