Trivia

March 8, 1971, Madison square garden. No single event even to this date, not super bowl, not the world series or NBA playoffs had the viewing audience as did the "fight of the century", between Muhammad Ali and then heavyweight champion Joe Frazier. This was truly a global event. In Ireland the IRA (Irish Republican Army) suspended hostilities so the fight could be watched. In North Vietnam it was viewed. And the fight very much lived up to its billing, (fight of the century) with Joe Frazier winning. See more »

I watch it at least once a year
27 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

I watch this DVD at least once a year. The fight clips are great. It is so moving to see the great champions having dinner together. Especially at the very end when Ali & Frazier embrace. During the dinner you get a sense of some lingering animosity from Joe Frazier towards Ali, and Ken Norton at Larry Holmes. But the great champs put aside most of their ill feelings out of respect for each other, and their individual accomplishments. Big George Foreman was about two years into his comeback while this was being filmed, and it shows. Reggie Jackson does such an awesome job as the mediator. If you are even just a casual boxing/sports fan do not miss this amazing documentary.
