‘Thrilla in Manila’ Focus of HBO Doc

Apr 6, 2009  •  Post A Comment

A new HBO documentary on the “Thrilla in Manila” heavyweight bout between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier focuses on Frazier as the moral victor of the fight, the New York Times says. Frazier was mocked for five years by Ali as an Uncle Tom, a pedestrian puncher, as the gorilla in Manila, the paper says.
