Google the Thriller In Manilla. Or you can watch this epic boxing match between
Joe Frazier and Ali on Youtube is you wish to do so. Smokin Joe', died a few days ago due to cancer at the age of 67. He was one of the greatest fighters of all time next to Ali. He will be sorely missed. What do you think about the legacy he left behind ? I am here.

The first and third bouts between Frazier and Ali were some of best fights in history. Their contrasting styles - in and out of the ring - were also amazing.

They also earned more respect because of how they fought against each other. Frazier was a tough slugger, but proved that he was also a great boxer with his bobbing and weaving.

Conversely, Ali was known as a slick boxer, but also proved he was tough by slugging it out with Frazier and could take a lot of punches.

Those were the good old days of boxing!

I agree.
