Frail Muhammad Ali pays respects to Joe Frazier

Tuesday November 15, 2011

Muhammad Ali was among the boxing greats paying their respects to the late Joe Frazier at his funeral.

Despite his frail appearance - he required assistance as he walked - the living legend still turned up to honour the man he fought against in one of the most memorable boxing matches of all time.

Joe Frazier passed away on November 7, 2011 after fighting a battle with cancer.

Rival Muhammad paid tribute to the legend upon hearing of his death, saying:

"The world has lost a great champion. I will always remember Joe with respect and admiration.

"My sympathy goes out to his family and loved ones."
