Ghosts of Manila

A very nice Bill Simmons column about "Ghosts of Manila," a great book by Mark Kram about (and this is the subtitle that appears on the cover) "the fateful blood feud between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier."

This line from Simmons says it best:

"One thing's for sure: Heading into that third fight, Joe Frazier genuinely hated Muhammad Ali. Even if Ali never intended to kill Frazier, he quickly realized there was no other recourse."
