    Marvis you and I were supposed to fight back the end of 76 at Monticello raceway. Unfortunately the fight never happened because you were a heavy weight I was a light heavy. I fought someone named John Thorpe. I knocked him out third rd. you also stopped your opponent. I was fighting under Floyd Patteroson. By the way I’m a huge fan of your dad! An amazing non stop fighter with incredible determination!

      Thank you for the comment Jimmy. I will pass it along to Marvis. Boy, in 1976, when you two were supposed to fight, Marvis was just getting started. How far did you go as a boxer? Jamie

    Congratulations to Marvis Frazier and Jamie Potter.

    The life story of Marvis Frazier, who hails from a home of boxing champions, is a heart-rending and inspiring saga of human endeavor. The reader will be pleasantly surprised by the gentle nature of a man that was in every way a boxing champion, but who faced life’s many trials and tribulations without allowing it to defeat the human spirit inside of him.

    Marvis Frazier, like his legendary dad, is a decent American citizen and a great role model for future generations.

    God Bless Him!
