Fans gathered to pay their respects to boxing legend Joe Frazier during a public memorial viewing at the Wells Fargo Arena in Philidelphia.
Frazier was laid out in the middle of an arena in Philadelphia in a white, closed casket, as per his will, with his trademark black cowboy sitting atop and a white blanket that said, 'Heavyweight Champion of the World, Smokin' Joe Frazier '.
Saturday is the last day fans will be able to attend the public memorial before his final viewing and private service, which is to be held on Monday at a Cheltenham church. Long time rival Muhammad Ali is expected to attend the service along with former heavyweight champions Larry Holmes and Mike Tyson.
Floyd Mayweather is contributing a large portion of funeral costs along with George Foreman, who is unable to attend the services.
