In the picture above, Harlem’s rapper Juelz Santana was photo’d with legendary boxer Joe Frazier, in 2003 at the Philadelphia Hip-Hop Summit, which was held at Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. According to People.com, “Joe Frazier, the former world heavyweight boxing champion, died after a battle with liver cancer. He was 67. Frazier, whose death was confirmed Monday by his family, had been in a Philadelphia-area hospice. Known for his famous “Thrilla in Manila” fight in 1975 against Muhammad Ali, whom he fought three times, “Smokin’ Joe” Frazier is an inductee of both the International Boxing Hall of Fame and the World Boxing Hall of Fame. In all, Frazier – at 5’11½ and 205 lbs., considered small for a heavywieght – won 32 fights: 27 by knockouts, losing four times (twice to Ali and also to George Foreman). Another fight ended in a draw.”
