SYNOPSIS: Heavyweight boxer Duane Bobick, who was fought his way to the finals in the 1972 Olympics before losing, is now being managed by Joe Frazier -- the former heavyweight champ who is still hoping to regain the tittle.
Joe is more than a manager to Duane Bobick -- here in the red jersey working out with Frazier. He's also his teacher. For managers have the skill or nerve to mix it with their boys. Bobick, who has been in-active in actual fighter lately, meets Terry Hinke in New York later this month.
Bobick has unblemished professional records of 25 victories, including 23 knockouts...but now he has to move up to the job of facing more skilful contenders.
