Back in the ring

Larger than life: A 3.6m bronze statue honouring Philadelphia boxing legend Joe Frazier being unveiled outside the Xfinity Live! complex on Sept 12, 2015. The artist Stephen Layne recreated Frazier in mid-punch, depicting the moment after Frazier landed the punch that knocked down Muhammad Ali (below) in the 15th round of their fight on March 8, 1971, at Madison Square Garden.

PHILADELPHIA: Smokin’ Joe will headline one more boxing card.

The family of Joe Frazier is set to honour the former heavyweight champion with a slate of bouts in Atlantic City, New Jersey – site of his parents’ first date, his son noted – to celebrate what would have been his 80th birthday.
