Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier III
Having regained the World Heavyweight Championship in a historic fight in Zaïre against George Foreman, 10 years after having winning it in 1964, Muhammad Ali seemed invincible. His rivalry with Joe Frazier flared up, as Smokin' Joe saw a chance to regain the title himself in a "rubber match". With everything on the line, and nothing to lose, Joe Frazier gives it all in this epic battle often referred to as the "Thrilla in Manila".
