    Default Smokin Joe Frazier

    DIRECTOR Penny Marshall is developing a movie based on the life of Smokin' Joe Frazier.

    Frazier and his business manager, Les Wolff,recently met with Marshall in her New York apartment, Wolff told us yesterday.

    Mercedes Ganon, a Los Angeles-based writer and musician, who performs simply as Mercedes, is working on a screenplay with a few other screenwriters.

    Mercedes, who says Frazier's "like a father" to her, met Marshall not long ago and pitched her on a biopic of the boxing legend.

    She says there's already some studio interest in the picture, which would be produced by Marshall's Parkway Productions.

    Meanwhile, Frazier's gearing up for a singing comeback.

    He's reorganizing his ensemble, which he calls the Knockouts, and hoping to land an engagement in February at an Atlantic City casino, Wolff said yesterday.

    Wolff says Frazier's "an accomplished R&B performer," for whom Paul Anka wrote a special version of "My Way." Frazier recently serenaded the People Paper's Stan Hochman with the song. Hochman was impressed.

    Having met him before, he's also a classy guy. He's still drivin those classic Cadillacs from back in the day.

    Everytime those Frazier/Ali battles are on, I always watch like it was just yesterday. Boxing will never be on that worldwide scale like it was then.

    Agreed. The heavyweight division is and has been a joke for a long time now.Those fights were epic. I'm afraid we'll never see the likes again regardless of sport. Everything in the new millenium is sooooo watered down. I actually hated Ali for the shit he gave Frazier until I realized it was all Big Time Wrestling.LOL

    The closest thing to the Ali/Frazier/Forman stuff was just a few years ago. Bernard Hopkins was in Puerto Rico doing an interview for his upcoming fight with Felix Trinidad. I believe Bernard threw the PR Flag down, or a bag of rice or some shit like that. I thought it was funny, even though most of my friends of latino dissent did not agree. I realized it was all show.

    That shit with Frazier and Ali was waaaaaaaaaaaaay deep. I saw an interview with Joe's daughter where she said that those two only recently made up cuz of all that shit. Ali was a mad man. Only guy that told you he was gonna kick your ass, and then did it.

    How do you fight a guy like that. 6'3, 220, fast as lightning, powerful, brash, arrogant, etc. Truly one of a kind. Too bad for him he didn't see Joe's left hook coming in that first fight!

    I will watch it. I read Joe Frasiers book when it came out. He really hated Ali in it. Ali is my favorite fighter though, so I can't say I am too excited to see this. I am sure it won't have much nice things to say about Ali.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    smokin joe is great, i met him as well and he was awesome to sit and talk to.

    boxing is so bad now...everytime they hype a fight, it is such a let down...and there are zero heavyweights worth anything.

    Makes you want to wish for the good ol' days. When championship fights were on ABC's Wide World of Sports, and they were FREE!

    And the heavyweight fights were 15 rounds.
