Ali-Frazier: sports gem

The two geatest world boxing champions, elusive Muhammad Ali and gritty Joe Frazier fought three legendary boxing competitions against each other in a decisive 1971 fight in New York City, a memorable fight 1974 in New York City, and a famous 1975 fight in the Phillippines.

The first fight in 1971 went to Joe Frazier who upset Ali's elegant reign in the boxing world. The second fight found a struggling but resilient Ali bounce back to reclaim his coveted title. The third fight, the engaging "Thrilla in Manilla" found Frazier succeeding in a tough fight.

This lyrical impactful series of three devastating fist-fights illuminated the way boxing reflects strength idealization and sealed the Ali-Frazier rivalry as a timeless sports symbol of muscle intellgence.

The entertaining qualities of this classic boxing rivalry reflects the capitalist value of the grit-themed Hollwood (USA) movie "Fight Club" (1999) and the ambition-themed Hollywood (USA) movie "Ali" (2001).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
