Boxer Joe Frazier says hell be attending a party in New York tonight (Mar. 8) to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the 1971 fight that left Ali flat on his back.
Frazier reminisces, I was just waiting for that day to show up. It was one of the greatest fights EVER. We fought 15 rounds....I beat the guy who said, [in Ali voice] Joe Frazier, I am the greatest!
In the past, there was some bad blood between Frazier and Ali, but the fighter admits things have changed.
He jokes, You know how they say beat em when hes down? I beat em up when hes down!
He then concedes, We had some great moments. A lot of people love both of us. Im gonna give him that respect. Were just gonna enjoy what the Lord gave us.
