Topic: Thrilla in Manila


  
  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Thrilla in Manila
The Thrilla in Manila was a famous boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, fought at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City of the Philippines on October 1, 1975.
Ali spent his time in Manila taunting Frazier at every opportunity, even taunting him with his poem, "It's gonna be a chilla, and a killa, and a thrilla, when I get the Gorilla in Manila." So, when they got into the ring Frazier was, as he was in the first bout, an angry warrior.
