Greatest Fights - The Thrilla in Manila (Ali v Frazier 3) with Gene Kilroy

Description

Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier fought to a standstill in their final contest back in 1975, in what has become along with 'The Rumble in the Jungle' one of the defining fights in the history of 'The Greatest'.

One of the last surviving members of Ali's inner circle, his manager and confidante Gene Kilroy, joins Mike Costello and Steve Bunce to remember the build up, the night, and the legacy left by Ali.
