Ali-Frazier I. It was voted the biggest event in the history of Madison Square Garden, the mecca of boxing.

Yeah. I think Ali-FrazierI and the Schmeling-Louis II were the two biggest fights with Jeffries-Johnson and Dempsey-Tunney II fighting it out for number 3.

1-Fight of the Century....Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier 1

2-Joe Louis vs Max Schmeling 2

I pick Ali-Frazier 1 because you had two great Heavyweights(Both undefeated)where Louis-Schmeling had just one great Heavyweight.Both fights were about equally anticipated.

Ali-Frazier I

If Mayweather and Pac fight, then that may be the biggest fight of this century

Everyone in the world was anticipating Louis-Schmeling II, not just fight fans. The world wide political ramifications made it the biggest sporting event in history.
