Former heavyweight boxer Joe Frazier, most famous for delivering Muhammad Ali his first career defeat, died on Monday, as a result of liver cancer. He was 67.

He’s being remembered as both a boxer and as a man who fought racism in the Deep South. Promoter Bob Arum said of Frazier, “He was a real man. He was a proud, great warrior who was everything that was great about boxing. It was one of my life’s great experiences knowing him.”

Frazier retired with a 32-4-1 record and a gold medal for the United States at the 1964 Summer Games in Tokyo. His most memorable moments, however, are his bouts with Alli. Frazier took 1971′s “Fight of the Century” at Madison Square Garden, then dropped the January 1974 rematch, which led to the famous “Thrilla in Manila” match in 1975 where Ali won.
