In 1975 two legends of boxing met in the ring for the third and final time. Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier had already clashed in two previous bouts, with each claiming a victory. But in this final titanic match in Manila, The Philippines, the two men would battle for 14 grueling rounds to become the Heavyweight Champion of the world. The fighters gave everything they had to defeat one another. In the end, Ali was declared the winner, but both were ready to concede defeat. In this graphic novel, readers will have a ringside seat to one of the most iconic moments in sports history and watch as two legendary fighters go toe-to-toe in boxing's greatest bout.
