I had the opportunity to meet Joe Frazier on two occasions. He was kind and friendly. One great boxing judge, Lou Tabat (look it up) who died earlier this year from cancer, told me that this era was the greatest ever. Lou and I were good friends and side by side in church every Sunday. He would get very excited when we talked about
the Ali-Frazier fights (he never judged them).
A few years ago (Pacquiao Vs. Ledwaba..same card with a De la Hoya fight at the MGM Garden Arena) I was at a fight with a press pass and Joe kinda bumped me and turned around and apologized. I told him it was the best pain I felt that day...
