    Books on Power & Footwork: www.modernmartialartist.com/downloads/power-of-the-pros/ It’s hard to think of two boxers more different than Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali, both in the way that they fought, and the way that they lived. But these two champions would come to define each others place in history, each man bringing out the best in the other inside the ring, and the worst outside of it.
    They would face off for the first time in 1971, in what came to be known as, The fight of the century.
    When the match was scheduled, it was anyone’s guess how the fight would go.
    Ali used complex footwork to circle his opponents on the outside, catching them with whipping jabs before dashing in to throw lightning fast combinations.
    In contrast, Frazier would drive directly at his opponents. Rather than use traditional footwork to cut off the ring, Frazier would just charge straight in, counting on his cross guard and phenomenal head movement to keep him safe.
    Both Frazier and Ali had some of the best defense of all time, but once again, were polar opposites in the way they went about it.
    Frazier used his erratic head movement to make opponents miss, ducking in under their punches to catch them with his powerful gazelle hook.
    In contrast, Ali would lean far back, making his opponents chase him and overreach so that he could land a perfectly placed counter punch.
    Frazier took his power from the ground, exploding off of his deep crouch. Ali got his power from his opponents, tricking them into stepping into his punches for him.
    Both men were similar in that they wore their opponents down over time, Frazier with constant wrestling and body shots, Ali with lightning fast jabs that cut and swelled up his opponents eyes, and took the air out of their lungs.
    As the two both prepared for their upcoming battle, both were undefeated.
    But this match was more than just a clash of styles. Several elements combined to make this fight transcend boxing in the eyes of the public.

wait I thought Frazier agreed with Ali's decision of not being drafted going as far to say "If I couldn't fight to be a christian then I wouldn't be fighting" I could be wrong I just seen that in a documentary

I really don't see why people act like Ali was such a good man. He was a piece of shit as a person and imo not the best fighter ever. Karma got him back for his mouth. Americans should hate him because he hated America. Ali talked about his "slave name" yet he's a fucking idiot because he was named after a white guy that fought hard to END slavery but Ali would rather be named after the Muslim Muhammed who was nowhere as good a man as the Clay he was named after. Frazier was the man. Stop looking at Ali through rose tinted spectacles. He wasn't "clowning" anyone, he was losing. If that was an unknown fighter who was getting beat but pulling faces and shit like that people would laugh at him.

joe frazier was the best boxer for head movement ever, with head movement you don't see the punch come then move, you move and then hope he throws the punch you thought he would throw, i know this from experience he knew exactly what ali would throw that's why he was so good at dodging

Like your breakdowns , watch them all the time and this is one of my favourite fights all-time.16-09 I believe Joe was just too exhausted to finish Ali , he just gave him more then needed to take out any human being, and Ali was still there , so Joe just couldn't keep on that kind of pressure , he needed a breath or two ...Of course Ali was playing possum, but It looked too obvious and i think Smoking Joe was too experienced fighter to buy it ...

Sometimes circumstances, events, are beyond a man's control. Ali's best fighting years likely could have been the three years he was banned. Look at Mike Tyson he was great maybe the greatest for a period of time, then suddenly beatable. So on two accounts not fighting for three years in real fights and being a few years older would definitely work against Ali. Without being banned for three years probably Ali would have fought earlier than the date of this fight against Frasier. Without a break from fighting and a year or two younger a quicker sharper Ali would have made a big difference, there's no doubt some difference in his favor. You don't get better being banned for three years over his beliefs about the Vietnam war. I'm not an expert boxer but it seems to me three years off from real fights makes a difference and Joe Frazier knew this too. So while Ali looked pretty good, the three years off from real fights and being a couple years older would not help him. I would suggest the best Muhammad Ali was the Ali we never saw during the three years he was banned from boxing. I believe fighters fight regular and get into a rhythm of toughness physical and mental timing rhythm. The evidence this is possible is the fact that Muhammad Ali later won some good fights eventually beating Joe Frazier, then ultimately George Foreman. The best Ali was the lightning quick youthful Ali that beat Sonny Liston just like the best Mike Tyson was the young Iron Mike Tyson that knocked everyone out and was essentially unbeatable. Interestingly Mike Tyson actually beat Buster Douglas by KO as Mike knocked down Buster in the 8th round , Buster getting a 14 second long count saving him. Had Mike been correctly given the victory no one could have contested it as on video review Buster did not get up at 10 after being knocked down. A different referee could have started the count more correctly , sooner. Who knows what would have happened after that , Mike's career. Some would say Mike needed to lose. I would say Buster needed to win for sure. Buster did out box Tyson impressively, but you still can't take away the 8th round from Mike. So just like that eighth round long count was beyond Mike's control , the three-year boxing suspension Muhammad Ali received in his prime was too. I mean if Ali had gone into the army he was gone that way too, either way he was screwed by the Vietnam war. The discussion of Ali refusing the Vietnam war is an entirely different discussion. The fact is Ali was banned from boxing for 3 years during his prime best years. IMO

If a Republucan would have been president during Johnson's time, they would have either left earlier, or would have have permitted no sympathy against the Vietcong. Leftists- YOU are responsible for losing that war, and YOU- unless you're Russian or Chinese, are incompetent when it comes to fighting wars. Go Frazier! Go Nixon! Go Trump! Fuck You!!

I have no respect for Ali because of his demeaning attitude toward Frazier. Ali always said Frazier was dumb, but if you've ever heard them talking, you realize that Joe had class (Ali had none) and that Joe was intelligent (Ali had a 75 IQ, making him one of the least intelligent fighters ever). Joe was superior to Ali in so many ways and very much his equal in the ring.

Great video, but I would like it better if Ali's time away was not consistently referred to as "3 years". It was 3 years and 7 months between his fight with Zora Folley (3-22-67) and Jerry Quarry (10-26-70), and more importantly, almost 4 years to the day between Ali's fight with Folley and his fight with Frazier (3-8-71).

Frazier SUPPORTED and backed Ali concerning his stance on the war.....who told you he condemned him!?!? Frazier even gave Ali financial help, and was active in trying to help Ali regain his license. Frazier only developed a hatred for Ali after Ali began insulting him, which actually resulted in death threats to Frazier and his family. Cmon man.....good channel but you gotta do better research.
