Joe Frazier Statue

The 12-foot bronze statue of Philadelphia boxing legend Joe Frazier sits directly outside of the Xfinity Live! complex. Artist Stephen Layne recreated Frazier in mid-punch, illustrating the moment after Frazier landed the punch that knocked down Muhammad Ali in the fifteenth round of their fight on March 8, 1971, at Madison Square Garden.
