    It is the greatest sporting event of all time.

    Ali would later say that "this is the closest I've ever been to dying" and he was ready to quit in the 14th, but Frasier's corner quit just before he could.

    The Thrilla in Manilla.

    Ferdie Pacheco would always say that Ali was never the same after this fight.

    Ali was the greatest. RIP

    The wiki page has a pretty good summary of the fight.

    Great shot of Ali and Cosell.
