“It was a bad reckoning for both that day…” –Burt Watson, Joe Frazier’s longtime friend on the Thrilla in Manila
October 1, 1975. At the scorching hot Araneta Coliseum in Manila. Titans went to war. There was nobility in the ring at the third fight between Muhammad Ali and Smokin’ Joe Frazier. There was heavyweight royalty. There was brutality. And legacy. There was heart and courage and defiance, grit, determination, perseverance. Each man refused to lose, in what was the most heartbreaking display of willfulness ever in the boxing ring. It is the fight by which all great fights are compared.
It is the Thrilla in Manila. We celebrate the anniversary of boxing’s most epic fight with this vintage graphic tee!
