Vitali Klitschko, MSG on Joe Frazier's passing away

“My brother Wladimir and I are very sad to hear that Joe Frazier has passed away. He was one of the greatest heavyweight champions of all times. I am very proud to have the same title that Joe once had. His three fights against Muhammad Ali are classics in sports history. Joe has done a lot for the sport of boxing – as a champion as well as through his social involvement. Our thoughts are with his family.” - Vitali Klitschko, WBC World Heavyweight Champion


Joe Frazier has been synonymous with Madison Square Garden since the "Fight of the Century" in 1971, the most anticipated sports event of all time. Joe fought ten times at The Garden during his storied career, and remained a friend to all at MSG to the end. A true character and gentleman, Joe will be sadly missed by everyone at Madison Square Garden. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
