watch the briliance of the dancing master for a couple of hours, and you will understand my obsession with him. first, on ESPN classic 10:00pm eastern standard time is Ali-liston II the rematch in 1965. even though the fight was questionable, watch the hand and footspeed of a 23year old ali in the first two minutes leading up to the "phantom punch" and you will be amazed, not to mention this fight will be the second to last fight of ali's cleaning out the hw division of the 60s, cause he will demolish floyd patterson after and will leave no doubt as to who rules hw boxing at that time. at 10:30pm eastern time watch what many think is the greatest hw fight of all time, the thrilla in manilla ali-frazier III in 1975.(i personally think it is second, under ali-frazier I) watch ali dig deep and pull off this impressive victory at 33 years of age and cement his legacy as the greatest fighter ever to put on gloves! check it out!!
