It looked to me as if Frazier was protesting Futch's decision.
(I can only go on what I see, hear and read.)
Dundee and Bundini would never have allowed Ali to quit anyway, so there's no suggestion (from me) that he wouldn't have come out for the 15th.
Ali quit? He didn't even want to quit after round 10 of the Holmes fight. Just more sensationalism from the Ali camp- just like the broken jaw probably happened after the second round. The Ali legend makes for good tales and ripping yarns.
