Legendary Boxing Champion Joe Frazier Dies Of Liver Cancer In Philadelphia

As a North Philly native I can tell you that there was no way anyone wouldn’t be proud of the accomplishments & community service that Smokin Joe Frazier had done over the years. I remember visiting his gym a few times as a kid on North Broad street which was several blocks from my grandmothers home. Because of Joe Frazier’s success & visibility in the community he inspired generations of brothers from Philly beyond boxing. I’ve been fortunate enough to have met Joe Frazier several times over the years & unlike most celebrities like him, Joe was actively involved in community & was very visible from what I remember when I still lived in Philly. While the Philadelphia Eagles were closing out their Monday Night Football game with a loss to Chicago, sports fans in Philadelphia & the world were just getting word that one of the greatest boxers in history had died of liver cancer. It goes without saying that it was truly a sad evening in Philadelphia last night…. Rest in Peace Smokin’ Joe Frazier.
