I met him once....IN WILDWOOD when I was like 11. I remember my friends family saying "GO GO GO TAKE A PICTURE WITH HIM!" I had no idea who he was until I got older.
The man is a LEGEND. and Smokin' Joe Frazier will now have a Philadelphia Street named after him! Frazier’s family, fans, boxing legends and folks from the neighborhood gathered to celebrate the ceremonial renaming of the stretch of Glenwood Avenue between Broad Street and Germantown Avenue as “Smokin’ Joe Frazier Boulevard.” The former gym is just north of Broad and Glenwood.
