  • Boxing great Joe Frazier dies after cancer fight--video extra

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joe Frazier needed the night of his career to knock down "The Greatest."

    Frazier knocked Muhammad Ali down in the 15th round and became the first man to beat him in the Fight of the Century at Madison Square Garden in March 1971, the first in a trilogy of bouts that have gone down as boxing's most fabled fights.

    "That was the greatest thing that ever happened in my life," Frazier said.

    It was his biggest night, one that would never come again.

    The relentless, undersized heavyweight ruled the division as champion, then spent a lifetime trying to fight his way out of Ali's shadow.

  • Former '60 Minutes' commentator Andy Rooney dies--video extra

    NEW YORK (AP) — Andy Rooney, the curmudgeonly commentator who spent more than 30 years wryly talking about the oddities of life for "60 Minutes," died Friday night, CBS said. He was 92.

    Just a month ago, Rooney delivered his last regular essay on the CBS newsmagazine.

    CBS said he died Friday night in New York from complications from a recent surgery.

    Rooney, also a syndicated newspaper columnist, talked about what was in the news. But he was just as likely to use his weekly television essay to discuss the old clothes in his closet, why banks need to have important-sounding names or whether there was a real Mrs. Smith who made Mrs. Smith's Pies.
