Former heavyweight champion Joe Frazier has liver cancer and is under hospice care.

The 67-year-old boxer was diagnosed four or five weeks ago, Frazier’s personal and business manager said Saturday. Leslie Wolff told the Associated Press the doctors have not yet told Frazier how long he has to live.

“We have medical experts looking into all the options that are out there,” Wolff said. “There are very few. But that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop looking.”

Wolff, who has been Frazier’s manager for seven years, said the boxer had been in and out of the hospital since early October and receiving hospice treatment for the last week.

“We appreciate every prayer we can get,” Wolff said. “I’ve got everybody praying for him. We’ll just keep our fingers crossed and hope for a miracle.”
