*Funeral services for boxing legend the mighty Joe Frazier have been set for Monday at Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church in Philadelphia at 11am.
Just a month after being diagnosed with liver cancer, the 67-year-old former athlete passed away. His remains will be viewed by the public at the Wells Fargo Center from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and again Saturday morning.
“This will be an opportunity for his many fans, supporters and boxing lovers from around the world to pay their final respects to Joe Frazier.”
“The Family of Joe Frazier continues to stress that they want everyone to know that Joe Frazier was a man of God and a man who loved all of his family,” relatives said in a statement.
Although championship boxer, Floyd Mayweather, offered to pay for the funeral, the family said all donations in Frazier’s memory can be made to the American Cancer Society.
