2011: Retired professional boxer Joe Frazier, a former Olympic gold medalist and undisputed world heavyweight champion, dies of liver cancer at the age of 67 in Philadelphia. Frazier was the first boxer to beat Muhammad Ali as a professional, winning a 15-round unanimous decision in 1971 to retain his WBC and WBA world heavyweight titles in what was known as the "Fight of the Century." Two years later Frazier lost his title when he was knocked out by George Foreman. He retired in 1976 following a second loss to Foreman, but returned for one last fight in 1981.
