Since it wasn't for a title and it was only 12 rounds it failed to capture the publics imagination as much as the first. It also didn't have the same intensity as the first or third fight did.

What would be a logical reason for this?
Is it because Frazier and Ali didnt dislike eachother as much as before that fight? Or did Smoking Joe really lose that much of his Smoke?

I think they were fighting mainly just to get a title shot. Most of the hadred they had for each other was battered out in the first fight.

It wasn't that great a fight. Ali gave him a pounding.

i dont think joe was losing that badly but he was losing.

the first and thrid fights were great because they were so close between two tough guys with two of the best hearts in the business

I've never seen this fight and seems like no one ever upload this one except the first and the third fight.

its uneventful as the 1rst and third like many said, because it wasnt for a title, and it went to the ud for ali

edit: why wasnt it scheduled for 15 rounds, im watching ali/bonavena right now and it goes 15 and isnt a title fight? was it sumthing ali or fraziers camp wanted? 12 instead of 15?

the first quarry fight and the bonavena fight was scheduled for 15 rounds because since ali never lost his title in the ring he was still recognized as champion by some boxing organizations.
