On Saturday, friends and family gathered at Ivy Hill Cemetery to unveil Joe Frazier’s new crypt. In the year after his death, Frazier's legacy is stronger than ever in Philadelphia. Architecture students at Temple are seeking historic status for his former gym. Dennis Playdon, an adjunct professor at Temple's Tyler School of Art, was inspired to save the building when he saw a "for sale" sign.

"He's been largely ignored in Philadelphia," Playdon said. "I just didn't want to see him disappear."
