Oooh, I can't wait to see this! Especially want to see how they portray the bitter Frazier/Ali rivalry. What a great idea. Thanks for posting as I hadn't heard of this movie yet! My grandfather was a boxer in the Navy and I love hearing his stories about being a 'youngblood' and winning fights back in the day.
HBO recently started airing the documentary Thrilla In Manila. The angle of this film was from the perspective of Joe Frazier. I won't spoil anything just in case you end up getting a copy of the movie somehow. Imelda Marcos was one of the interviewees. She denies that they ever paid $10M to bring the fight to Manila.
Uy! Great! Will wait for that. I read Kram's Ghosts of Manila about that fight
