Synopsis:
In 1975 Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier fought their third and final contest. What unfolded in the searing heat of Manila is now considered the greatest-ever boxing match in history; with an ending so dramatic it defies belief and continues to provoke controversy. But this is a story about more than a remarkable fight, it's about a bitter and intense rivalry, fuelled by race and religion.
Just eight years earlier these men had been friends, with Frazier even supporting Ali when he had been stripped of his boxing licence for refusing to fight in the Vietnam War, but leading up to their final confrontation in Manila the two were caught up in a growing vicious feud born out of the explosive racial politics of 1970's America. Combined with electrifying archive footage and exclusive interviews; this is the definitive account of a 1970's iconic event through the eyes of the other man in the ring - Joe Frazier.
