Bernard Hopkins Looks to Buy Joe Frazier’s Gym

August 8, 2014 by Brent Leggs

Last week, the Metro Newspaper in Philadelphia wrote a story about Bernard Hopkins’ desire to acquire and redevelop Joe Frazier’s Gym into a community resource to build tomorrow’s diverse leaders. He said,

"I would want to be able to make a bid for the gym, and I will request the city back me as a non-profit to make the gym not only a boxing gym but make it more of a learning center for the youth — learning how to eat, learning karate, learning self defense. It has to be something given to the community, to the youth." - See more at:
