Kiwi boxers pay tribute to iconic boxer Joe Frazier

By Tamati Tiananga

This morning, Rob 'The Butcher' Berridge and Joseph Parker paid tribute to a former iconic boxer who lost his fight to cancer in 2011. 

He won the world title and was the first to beat Muhammad Ali in the 1971 "Fight of the Century".

Parker was taken aback when he noticed near Frazier's headstone was a headstone of a man named Joseph Parker.

The fighters also travelled to Frazier's former gym.

Berridge and Parker hope this visit will give them the inspiration to win their fights this weekend.
