I said it was based on "IN THEIR PRIMES". Ali was clearly not in his prime for the Frazier fight, nor did anyone at that time who knew a thing or two thought that Ali was still in his prime after watching the Bonavena fight and then the Frazier fight, noticing there was a different Ali on those occassions then the one before his exile.
