Jacqueline "Jacqui" Frazier-Lyde (born Jacqueline Frazier; December 2, 1961) is an American lawyer and former professional boxer, who is the daughter of former world Heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier. In the year 2000, she shocked the boxing world by announcing that at the age of 38, she would begin participating in the sport of women's boxing. Frazier-Lyde had athletic experience, having played basketball at American University in Washington, D.C.
Inspired by Laila Ali's participation in the sport and eager to avenge the losses her father suffered at the hands of Ali's father, Muhammad Ali in two of their three fights, Frazier-Lyde began her career on February 6 of that year, knocking out Teela Reese in first round. Eventually, she and Ali kept on winning.
Laila Ali was 9-0 and Jacqui Frazier-Lyde was 7-0 with 5 knockouts when they starred on the first Pay Per View boxing card ever to be headlined by women. The bout, nicknamed Ali-Frazier IV by the media, in allusion to their legendary fathers' trilogy, was boxed on June 8, 2001 to headline the weekend activities of the International Boxing Hall Of Fame induction ceremonies. Ali won by landing a solid jab on Frazier's face in the eighth round. Jacqui Frazier-Lyde's agility was like her father's, but Ali distracted her and she faced punishing jabs.
Frazier-Lyde has a record of 13 wins, 9 by knockout, and 1 loss.
In 2008, Frazier-Lyde, an attorney practicing law, was elected in Philadelphia as a Municipal Court Judge.
