    You gonna come at me without overly large type in creative fonts and different colors?

    You’re better than that, man.

    I’m not mad at you. Just disappointed.

    Never thought about Frazier-Ali IV all these years. The last fight was one for the ages that left both guys spent. No need for another match between those two.

    I know. I disappoint myself quite ofen offen otfen whatever. I can to a rifle fight with a pear of nuckle dusters and a bottle of pepper spray. Just not up to true Morlock arguing par. My prime could be in the re a rview mirror. Next, I could lose a battle of wits to MarkAnt. All I can say in my defense is the classic General Kurtz line from "Apocalypse Now", "Rommel, you magnificent *******! I READ YOUR BOOK"!!!!!!

    Saintpat: Are you an assassin?

    Morlocks: I’m a soldier

    Saintpat: You are neither. You’re an errand boy, sent by grocery clerks to collect a bill.

    OooooooOooOOOOHHHH, THE HORROR
    THE HORROR

    THIS is the end. Beuuuutiful friend. This IS the end. My only friend, the end. Of all elaborate friends the end
    Of EVERYTHING that stands the end
    No safety or surprise the end
    I'll never argue Jack Dempsey's greatness w/ you again, the end.
    Can you picture what will be
    So limitless & free
    Desperately in need of some strangers hand
    In a, desperate land............

    The Thrilla in Manila, fantastic a fight as it was , emptied both fighters. They had nothing left after that. Noone with any sanity would have considered a 4th.

    I think the only time it was discussed was the summer of 1977, for a day or two. But it generated enough news to make the November 1977 cover of World Boxing.

    I doubt it, Joe was a very classy man and taking a public sparring match to the extreme with many onlookers seeing it as a friendly send off would be against his moral code from where I stand anyways.

    Oof honestly I don't think Frazier would show mercy and would batter the **** out of Ali. Ali stopped on his feet probably or maybe just clinch and run to survive. It would have been a stain on both of them and all involved.
