Champion97's picture

This truly was a classic! Ali proved his true heart and determination in this fight, given the circumstances, and the fact that it was a great performance from Joe Frazier even by his own standards means there is even less shame in this defeat. This was a very close fight, closer than the general perception amongst the public I think. I had it even after 14 rounds, for me, it was all on that last round, so Frazier, with that fantastic finish, dropping Ali like that, did enough to win the fight on my scorecard. I think the right guy got the decision here, but what a fight it was, it is worthy of its name for sure, it would have been a shame not to have seen a rematch and then final chapter between these two warriors after this battle.

Computer decided to create a twin for my original comment.

Time to score the fight of the century!

Left Eye's picture

Have two heavyweights ever been more superbly conditioned?

They set and maintained an unreal pace for 15 rounds, their speed and agility, they looked and fought like middleweights.

The level of skill on display is incredible.

Truly the Fight of the Century.

Where does the 33% controversy rating come from? I looked at the scorecards. My count might be wrong, but 16 had Frazier winning, 1 had Ali winning, and 3 had it a draw. That's 80% in favor in Frazier. Two had Frazier ahead but didn't score the whole fight. Were there some scores removed?
