alright, you've seen ali in his prime in the 60s, so now watch him achieve greatness in the 70s. instead of fleet and flash, now its smarts and tactics that he uses. see this great person take back the title from george foreman with a vengance, while doing other things along the way. and for you tyson fans who think he's better than ali, if that's so then how come ali needs two shows to capture his career when tyson only needs one? lol!! hahaha!! :D

Because Ali was getting his ass kicked at 66 by Berbick and Holmes, that needed some extra editing hahaha!!

Did ESPN lose the film of the first Ali/Frazier fight? They have never once shown that fight. They've shown Manila 6,000 times. Also, we've got boring ass Bonavena and Wepner fights lined up. This show is very depressing.

they showed FOTC once maybe a year ago on ESPN classic. they showed the second fight on ESPN, maybe 5 or 6 years ago.

they're showing the wepner fight now. many people on this forum say that wepner exposed ali in this fight. watch this fight and see who is really getting clowned. all i see is ali making wepner look stupid.

Wepner was a ****ing bum. He had no boxing skills at all. A true piece of garbage.

My question had to do with those who claim that Ali was sexually attracted to reptiles.

Nice try, but you won't find any quotes from those who've known me for a time claiming what you're getting at...unlike Butterfly's hero.

i think many people misinterpreted that from the book, "facing ali", when larry holmes talked about the many women ali brought in the camps, and larry said, " He would **** a snake if you held it's head down for him!" i don't think holmes actually meant that ali wanted to get it on with a snake, but that ali was with alot of women in his day, it seemed as if he would do any one, and anything.

Bah!

You don't even have to hold the mother****er's head. Just give him the snake.

espn classic apparently doesn't like to show fights where ali lost. they showed FOTC once, the holmes fight once, and thats it, although FOTC is clearly the greatest fight of all time. they won't show the norton fight, spinks fight, or berbick fight.

they actually showed the holmes fight?? unbelievable..Ali got rocked hard in that one (so I've heard), but thats another one I am yet to see. I desperately need to see Ali/Frazier I...is there any site that I can download/view it from?

i'm thinking of writing espn classic a letter asking them to show some fights i've never seen them show, such as the williams fight, one of the norton fights, and a couple others.
