Erect a statue in honor of Smokin' Joe Frazier

Philadelphia and boxing are inexorably linked, and no one has represented Philadelphia like Smokin' Joe Frazier, who just passed away from cancer. Two years ago, Joe's legendary gym vanished (soon to be replaced by a furniture store). The gym served as a safe haven and community center for many in a disenfranchised community, and sometimes a great hope out of despair.

Philadelphia, you have a statue for a fictional boxer, but none for Smokin' Joe. It's time his legend and his life were honored. We implore you, build a statue to celebrate Smokin' Joe Frazier
