Default Thrilla Or Rumble

last night our local channel RPN 9 featured a 2 hour special on Muhammad Ali from childhood to what he is at present. it was a great presentation...

after watching the show my friends and I debated as to what is Ali's greatest fight, thrilla in manila or rumble in the jungle

i argued that Thrilla in Manila is probably the best of the best. It was probably one of the most devastating ali fight, both ali and fraziers faces ballooned due to devastating blows and both stayed in the hospital for days after the fight. Plus they were fighting in a very harsh (since they are not used to it) environmental condition -- very high humidity and I read something like, there were mosquitos biting frazier in his corner . given these details, i'd say Thrilla is the best.

However one of my friend say that Rumble in the Jungle is the best since it featured the best of Ali, defense and instant offense. The rope-a-dope trick was a marvel! Foreman threw his devastating punches and were wild, it only took Ali 4 combo to knock out Foreman...

How about you?
