    REPORTER: "How about the rematch Joe?"



    FRAZIER: "Anytime. Anytime, though I don't think he'll want one right away though."



    FRAZIER: "It doesn't mean that I'm disputed. I thought I was the world champ. I've fought everybody they've put in front of me now. And I've beaten them."



    FRAZIER: "He was in good shape. He underestimated me. He thought I was a slow, flatfooted that I couldn't move, I couldn't do nothing. He kept talking to me 'I'm going to kill you'. I said 'Yeah?



    REPORTER: "You said that?"



    FRAZIER: "Well we are talking. You know what I mean."
