    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.

"Ali didn't just have great defense; he had a great jaw." Awesome analysis - love the bit linking Frazier to grappling; the way he moves his opponent. Limits their movement.

when round 14 ended ! Frazier was telling his coach he was OK , while Ali was very tired , suddenly the Doctor decides Frazier is no longer fit to fight , and then Ali collapses on his own resting stool been too tired , Frazier Badger hooks on Ali showed how much damage they took on Ali's head .

@The Modern Martial Just letting you know that Ali didn't get his boxing license back himself. It was his opponent Joe Frazier that personally talked to the president. And got him his license back, just so he could beat him. And while Ali was in exile, Frazier and Ali would meet up secretly and Frazier would lend him money just to live. They were friends until Ali started talking bad about him just to promote the fight.

This is one od the greatest fights of all times. Although I must say that the fight was much closer than the official scorecards suggest. There were so many discrepancies between the scorecards, could it just be a coincidence? And I know that you can't give the win to Ali, especially because of that k.d. in the 15th round. Who knows what would have happend if Ali wasn't forced to sit out 3.5 years of his prime.

Frank Sinatra was asked to take photograph's of the fight for Life Magazine, they'd get celebrities to either shoot pictures or write the story of big events it was a feature in the magazine. Sinatra didn't take photo's for the newspapers because he couldn't get a ticket, he's Frank Sinatra!!! Apart from being a massive A+ list star he was connected, "couldn't get a ticket" for a fight in NYC, lol?

Frazier had given Ali money when Ali was struggling Joe genuinely & to be honest quite rightly felt betrayed when Ali made those Gorilla cracks & called Joe an Uncle Tom? Frazier helped Ali more during the Boxing ban than many of Ali's so called friends did. I love Muhammad Ali but it's impossible to deny he was bang out of order in regard to his treatment of Smoking Joe Frazier, it's a shame Joe Frazier was a great Boxer & a great Champion.

Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Roberto Durán II, also known as the No Más Fight, is perhaps one of the most famous fights in boxing history. It took place on November 25, 1980 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, United States and was the second of three bouts between the pair. For reasons I've never heard about, Duran simply gave up. Anyone know why?

"Joe Frazier and Mohammad Ali were two very different men. Both in the way they fought, and in the way they lived." They also had different names, and different parents.

Joe Frazier was the better boxer....His head movement alone is insane and it's easy to see the similarity when you watch the early Mike Tyson fights of the mid-80's. It's so tragic that Ali had to resort to cheap race-baiting in the lead up to this fight. ALI was the one who all the white sports press loved.....
