Episode 20 - The Thrilla' In Manilla

The latest episode of 'The Greatest Events In Sporting History' is now available for download.

We cover what is regarded by many - us included - as the most epic fight in history. Muhammad Ali against Joe Frazier in Manilla for the Heavyweight boxing championship of the world.

Using the brilliant More4 documentary of the same name as our starting point, we look at the pre-fight build up, Ali's vicious taunting of Smokin' Joe in the lead up to the bout, his brazen infidelity, Frazier's thirst for revenge and finally on the 42 minutes of brutality that took place in a Filipino boxing ring.

'The Greatest Events In Sporting History' is available from both or at
