Passing the Torch

Following his retirement, Frazier remained close to the sport he loved by opening his own gym in his adopted home of Philadelphia. Among the fighters he trained over the years was his son, Marvis, and daughter, Jacqui, who went on to fight his longtime rival’s daughter, Laila Ali. As his health and finances dwindled, Frazier put the gym up for sale. At the time of his death he was under hospice care.
