Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier II
-
Muhammad Ali fights Joe Frazier for a second time, wanting to revenge his first professional defeat and seal the deal for a fight with George Foreman who had taken the title from Frazier the year before. Not being a title fight, this contest got less recognition than previously expected. It lived up to the hype, but wasn't nearly as intense as their first meeting. It was seen upon as a contest between two out of prime veterans who should both have retired a long time ago. After the fight they had a victory each, making the Thrilla in Manila possible the following year.
