You thought Ali won the F.O.T.C.?...yeah,...and then you woke up. Frazier did the fighting that night...Ali couldn't do anything with him...so he played against the ropes...waved to the crowd...threw pitty-pat punches...talked to Joe...then took a beating in the 11th round...almost went down...then got floored with a big left hook in the 15th...yeah,Ali won that night!!!

It goes to show you how biased a true fan can be.....we can look at a fight and give our guy the best benefit of the doubt and not see anything the other guy is doing.....I personally can not see anyway Ali could have won that fight in fact Frazier rocked him badly in the 11th and dropped him in the 15th and pretty much landed the harder punches most of the other rounds.....I remember people saying Ali won but it was delusional .......but a fan can see it through rose colored glasses....In my case when I watch a guy Im rooting for in my heart I see everything he is doing wrong so I always play the devils advocate but it is what it is...some fights are close..FOTC was not

Ali landed at will on Frazier for most of the fight. Frazier's face was a swollen mask by the end of it. I can see why some people think Ali won the fight.

I would be whats refered to by some as an 'Ali-nutthugger' (silly term) but Joe won this fight. It wasnt 'close' but neither was it lop-sided. Ali played his part in a great fight that joe won by a couple rounds and dervedly so. Not many would have lived with joe that night so its no shame to have been beaten by him

Well I'm a big Ali fan and I think Frazier won. Having said that I don't think it would have been outrageous if Ali had got the decision.

Frazier sealed the deal with the knockdown in rd. 15 back in 1971. However, yes, Ali nailed Frazier early and midway thru the fight with razor sharp punches that scored points. Ali struggled a tad in the champeenship rds of 11 thru 15, but was still competitive enough to raise a brow.... Still, I'll let the late Joe Frazier rest in peace and have his win with dignity....
