A statement from Ali on Frazier

In boxing history, Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali will be forever tied together for their three-heavyweight bouts in the 1970's. On Sunday afternoon, Ali issued this statement:

"The news about Joe is hard to believe and even harder to accept. Joe is a fighter and a champion and I am praying he is fighting now. My family and I are keeping Joe and his family in our daily prayers. Joe has a lot of friends pulling for him and I'm one of them."
