Smokin' Joe Fighting Cancer: Former heavyweight champion "Smokin'" Joe Frazier has liver cancer and is under hospice care. The 67-year-old boxer was diagnosed four or five weeks ago, Frazier's personal and business manager said Saturday. "We have medical experts looking into the all the options that are out there," said Frazier's manager Leslie Wolff. "There are very few."

That's heartbreaking. Diagnosed so recently and already in hospice care... that is not good. Hope they are able to keep him comfortable, at the very least.
