Ali only benefited - although I have seen some fanatics here claim the 1st Frazier fight, and the Berbick fight could have gone his way !
Ali was better than anyone thought he'd be in the Berbick fight. That made the fight look closer than it actually was. The FOTC was terrific,as we all know,and Ali put Frazier through hell. Saying it could easily have gone Muhammad's way,though,is a flight of fancy. There are some equally deluded souls,though,who claim that Frazier won the second one. If anything,that was the most one sided out of the trilogy.

Received three bullshit one point decisions..... two of the fights he clearly lost. The Simpson decision was a disgrace, Lewis vs Holyfield I kinda disgrace.

Likewise, how different might things have looked if Quartey had nicked the De La Hoya fight? If Wright had got the nod over Vargas? These weren't shockers by any means, but were both close fights that could easily have gone the other way.

Have some boxers had the knack of winning fights by decision that they really shouldn't? And conversely, how mny boxers are mere footnotes in the sport's history because one went against them?
chris eubank michael watson 1 was a disgrace

Only one sided because ali held frazier illegaly behind the head about 40 times each round and that idiot tony perez just said "i couldnt do anything about it" which is very suspicious of money being changed hands.

All Ali got was gift decisions ie Norton, favouritism in referees and then liston who fixed both fights and im even more adamant the first liston clay fight was fixed after il duce's refereeing report.

Come on, there is not one fight that Eubank won a decision in, that there was not a pretty decent argument as to why he won.

You may not of agreed with the decision, but the decisions were close and controversial rather than some of Ottke's, which were indeed out and out bad.
