to a good poster - jas 
Default Is it worthwhile to watch the second Ali-Frazier fight?

I've watched the Fight of the Century and the Thrilla in Manila loads of times, but I haven't watch Ali-Frazier II yet. People say Ali held his way to victory, clinching Frazier so many times yet the ref did nothing.

People say this is how Ali won, which sucks TBH lol. Should I watch the fight though?

The last time I watched it, it was a little better than I remembered. But it still is a distant third in their trilogy. Not as bad as the third Leonard-Duran fight, but lots of heading grabbing by Ali and an atrocious job of refereeing by the incompetent Tony Perez.

He was awful. The last time I watched him was when he worked the Mercer-Morrsion fight. He allowed Morrison to take clean head shots while out of it and trapped on the ropes.


The second Ali-Frazier fight is a decent fight to watch but compared to the other two it's a bit boring with a lack of drama.

Watch it, if only to see Ali do what all champions have to at some stage, win ugly. Frazier was sluggish though, slower than I think I've ever seen him. Ali wasn't exactly in superb shape either but he was smarter in the ring.

The second fight is a nice cushion between the explosive greatness of both men in the FOTC and the brutal beating Ali lay on Frazier in the end.
