September 30, 1975: "THE THRILLA IN MANILA"
Muhammad Ali\'s third fight against his rival Joe Frazier was a spectacular ending to the long lasting struggle of the two Heavyweights who faced each other for a total of 123 minutes in the ring.

Apart from Treasure island it is probably his best known work.
