He staggered Ali badly in the 11th and knocked him down in the 15th. Frazier won a clear, 15-round, unanimous decision - Frazier's second fight against Ali took place in 1974, in New York, with Ali winning a unanimous decision. in 1975 they met for a final time in the Philippines – “The Thrilla in Manila". In a punishing fight, Frazier did not come out for the 15th round with Ali describing it as "the closest thing to death he had ever experienced” Joe Frazier was a remarkable fighter and the only man that Ali was genuinely frightened of, hence his bitter and sometimes extreme verbal abuse of Frazier. To this day Frazier maintains that he could have come out for the final round in the third fight, Thrilla in Manila, and such was his anger with his trainer Eddie Futch for throwing in the towel that he never spoke to him again
