    If you love boxing (and I do), I feel blessed to have enjoyed the Frazier/Ali fight history. Anyone who doubts that Smokin' Joe won Ali/Frazier 1 (and there were many, especially in the Black community, where Ali had almost God like status), must have been watching the wrong fight. Frazier beat the brakes off Ali in that fight; it wasn't even close. Those two brought out the absolute best in each other. By my count, it was even: Frazier/Ali 1-Frazier, Ali/Frazier 2-DRAW, Ali/Frazier 3-Ali.
