The Rocky statue should be torn down and replaced.


I believe it already did get torn down...but absolutely, it should be replaced.
Why make a statue of a FICTIONAL boxer, in the first place lol? insane. i'd guess it has something to do with the lack of white champions

joe frazier represented the working class, downtrodden, and tough-men of america to the nth degree more than fucking hack-boy stallone. and he did it in real life, all his life.

Anyone else find it ironic that frazier always liked to touch on the fact that his physical health endured into his golden years while Ali's didn't?

I think the statue still stands by the Art Museum...I think it was only torn down in the movie.

Interesting quote by the Congressman. What is even better is that Mayweather has offered to pay all funeral cost for Frazier's services... That is what sup

The Rocky statue is still there. It's right behind the art museum. Visited the art museum and then took a picture with the statue afterwards. They could make a statue of Fraizer and it put it in that same general vicinity. That'd be pretty sweet actually. RIP Champ, he was a great figther.
