Frazier-Bonavena I

Sept. 21, 1966

Here's a look at the 10 most notable fights in the career of Joe Frazier, who died Nov. 7 of liver cancer.

After capturing a gold medal at the 1964 Olympics, Frazier knocked out his first 11 professional opponents before facing his toughest test yet in Oscar Bonavena. The rugged Argentine floored Frazier twice in the second round, but the Philadelphian rallied to win a majority decision at Madison Square Garden.
