PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Organizers say fundraising is complete — and a statue honoring boxing great Joe Frazier is a go. KYW’s Mike DeNardo reports.
The late boxing champ Joe Frazier is being memorialized in bronze, with an eight-foot statue outside Xfinity Live! at 11th and Pattison. Sculptor Larry Nowlan, who created the fan-funded Harry Kalas statue at Citizens Bank Park, was selected as the artist.
