Skillwise the 1st fight was far superior. Both were closer to their prime (well, joe WAS prime. Ali, not so much). By the time Manila came about they were both deteriorated (if thats the word) to the point that they were just about level and the fight became a war of attrition. Either fighter from FOTC stops the other from Manila
