The Real Rocky

Remember that movie about the down on his luck boxer from Philly who trained by punching huge sides of beef and running up those famous steps?

They called it "Rocky", but those elements were taken from Joe Frazier's life story.

In Philly, they built a statue of Rocky Balboa, but they have no statue of Smokin Joe?

The video below addresses this outrage.

Listen, Joe is 66 now. The years are catching up. He lives above a gym that bears his name but he no longer owns.

When I think of Philly, I think of Ben Franklin, Joe Frazier, and that Quaker Oats guy.

In the video, you will see the interviewer notices that Joe keeps his money in his sock and Joe takes it out and says "I worked hard for this money."

He sure has. Memo to the Philly City Fathers: Give This Man The Respect That He Deserves.

Joe Frazier Talks about The Rocky movies and Claims HE IS ROCKY!
i agree with him, Joe Is wrongly done by, We Love You Joe.
