It seems there was boatloads of coverage it was the biggest fight ever.
Yes, of course it was well covered for the day, but still nothing like todays media frenzy would be for a fight of its stature. I had to listen to the radio for between rounds reports from a guy at the closed circuit viewing at the spectrum. But yeah, it was definitely well covered for 1971. Man, it was tough back then to get boxing news.
