Joe Frazier – Fight of the century special edition presentation

Joe Frazier – Fight of the century special edition presentation

Item Number:  5586

This special edition presentation displays a black and white press photo of the late and great Frazier knocking Ali down in the 11th round on the way to beating Ali in 1971 - The Fight of the Century.

It is presented in a tasteful black frame with an inset mount and plaque that reads,

'Smokin' Joe Frazier - The Fight of the Century - In 1970 he became the undisputed world champion which set up his first fight with Ali. In 1971 Frazier fought Ali at Madison Square Garden. Frazier took control in the middle rounds, landing hard body shots as well as powerful left hooks to the head. He staggered Ali badly in the 11th and knocked him down in the 15th. Frazier won a clear, 15-round, decision.

It measures in at a large 43cm by 43cm and would make a great gift that would grace the home or office.

Joe Frazier was a remarkable fighter and the only man that Ali was genuinely frightened of, hence his bitter and sometimes extreme verbal abuse of Frazier.

His fight record is 32 wins, 4 losses, 1 draw and 27 wins by KO. He is a member of the Boxing Hall of Fame and will be remembered as one of the greatest Heavyweights in history.

In 1970 he became the undisputed world champion which set up his first fight with Muhammad Ali. In 1971 Frazier fought Ali at Madison Square Garden - “The Fight of the Century”.

Frazier took control in the middle rounds, landing hard body shots as well as powerful left hooks to the head. He staggered Ali badly in the 11th and knocked him down in the 15th.

Frazier won a clear, 15-round, unanimous decision - Frazier's second fight against Ali took place in 1974, in New York, with Ali winning a unanimous decision.

in 1975 they met for a final time in the Philippines – “The Thrilla in Manila". In a punishing fight, Frazier did not come out for the 15th round with Ali describing it as "the closest thing to death he had ever experienced”.

Frazier maintained that he could have come out for the final round and such was his anger with his trainer Eddie Futch for throwing in the towel that he never spoke to him again.
