Factual Specials

Thriller in Manila

This was the greatest fight of all time. It was the third and final confrontation between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali, two men who hated each other. It was a personal hatred born out of the explosive racial politics of 1970s America. Yet, eight years earlier, these two men had been friends.

This film explores their stormy relationship and the most famous boxing bout ever fought.
