Joe Frazier Net Worth Is $100 Thousand
Joseph William Frazier who was better known as ‘Joe’ Frazier was born in Beaufort, South Carolina on January 12, 1944, after a long and successful professional boxing career that included an Olympic Gold medal. He took his last breath on November 7, 2011 in Philadelphia, where he spent a major part of his life since moving North. His net worth was $100 thousand at the time of his death.
He was born to Dolly Richardson-Frazier and Ruebin Frazier, and was their 12th child, as was the norm then in his birthplace, he had a troubled childhood, mostly because their parents were poor farm workers. But this did not deter Joe from pursuing his passion of boxing, since he left home at the tender age of 15 in 1959.
His hard-work paid off when he was given the chance to represent the United States in the 1964 Olympics being held in Japan, he went on to win a Gold medal and hence kick-start a professional boxing career that would always be counted among the legends. He fought a total of 37 fights in his professional career that started in ’65 and lasted for 11 years. Joe won 32 of them losing just 4 and drawing once.
He is considered one of the greatest heavyweight champions of all time, and deserves it because he fought and beat the likes of Muhammad Ali in the early 70s, his fight with Ali was billed as the ‘Fight of the Century’. Joe Frazier might not be a millionaire with just a hundred thousand dollar fortune, but he will surely be the undisputed great of the ring from Beaufort and his 27 KOs stand testaments to the claim.
