Joe Fraizer became world heavyweight boxing champion from February 16, 1970, when he knocked out Jimmy Ellis in five rounds in New York City, until January 22, 1973.
In 1970 when Muhammad Ali was reinstated to the sport, a bout between the undefeated former champion and Frazier was inevitable. On March 8, 1971, the two heavyweights met in Madison Square Garden in the fight billed as “The Fight of the Century.” The two fought at a furious pace for 15 rounds and Frazier scored a decision over Ali. Frazier faced Ali again in 1974, losing a 12-round decision. On October 1, 1975, the two faced off in the Philippines for a third time. The fight, known as the “Thrilla in Manila,” was for the heavyweight championship title, and this time Ali was the winner by technical knockout after 14 gruelling rounds. After a few more fights, Frazier retired in 1976. Frazier was then inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990.
