Deadspin's own Brian Hickey checks in with a report from Frazier's business manager and friend, Les Wolff, who says the fighter's bout against liver cancer may be nearing an end.

A source close to Frazier also told the New York Post that "They're only giving him a short time to live. We need to have as many people as possible praying for Joe right now."
