Fight of the Century and Thrilla in Manila, the fight was considered by many fans and experts the most insignificant fight of their rivalry.
But this does not mean the fight itself was insignificant ; quite the contrary: Ali wanted to avenge his loss to Frazier in their first fight, and a world title try at Heavyweight champion George Foreman, who had dethroned Frazier, was at stake. Their first and third fights became part of boxing's lore, but most viewers considered the second fight to be entertaining as well. My goal was to make an glass sculptures which break in to a pieces. Pieces was done for Showtime Sports.
