New York, September 3 (ANI): Former Olympic champion Joe Frazier may not be sure who should portray him a film on his life, but he does have some recommendation for the role of his uncle and mentor, Rock.

"Wesley Snipes would be a good fit," the New York Post quoted him as saying.

Frazier is known for beating Muhammad Ali in their first bout, though he lost to the latter in twice later.

As regards any actors he would want to see portraying him in the film, the former World Heavyweight Boxing Champion said: "It would have to be someone that could accurately portray the struggles I went through to become heavyweight champ." (ANI)
