Default Re: Clay vs Frazier FOTC

March 8,1971...biggest fight of my lifetime...saw it on closed-circuit tv that night...so much
electricity in the air...Frazier won the fight...no question...without Frazier there wouldn't have been anything happening...Joe did all of the fighting...Ali couldn't do anything with him that night...he was laying on the ropes...talking to Joe....at one point Joe pulled Ali off the ropes and tried to get him to fight...it was only after Ali's hangers-on started screaming
Ali won the fight that Ali started saying he thought he won...there was never any doubt at the time...or now...
