I went to Joe Frazier's funeral yesterday. It was held at ***8232;Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church***8232; at 2800 West Cheltenham Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19150***8232;.

The choir had approx. 150 people and 1,000's attended. I sat in back of George Chuvalo and in front of Juan LaPorte. Also seating near me were Iran Barkley, Michael Spinks, Larry Hazzard, Rocky Lockridge, Leon Spinks, Gerry Cooney, just to name a few.

Ali, Hopkins, Holmes and King were some of the others that attended.

It was amazing, it was like a show, and it went on for 2 hours. Jesse Jackson spoke, as did several other Pastors. They had the place rocking. They also had several singers, who were as good as they get.

I believe he and Tyson couldnt make it. George offered some funeral expenses though.
