Thrilla in Manila

Thrilla in Manila

In the world of pro sports, classic rivalries are woven into the fabric of the game. In basketball, there's the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers; in baseball, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox; in football, the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys. In boxing, there's Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali, whose epic three-bout series from 1971 to 1975 transcended the sport. THRILLA IN MANILA tells the previously unknown story of their final fight in the searing heat of the Philippines through the eyes of the "other man" in the ring - Frazier. Premieres Saturday, April 11 at 8pm (ET). Read more.

sore loser that Frazier was and continue to be.  A pity he has embraced this for so long.  Give it up Joe, time to move on.  Even your own son appears to have placed it all behind him.
