The World Heavyweight Boxing Championship match known best as the "Thrilla in Manila" between boxing legends Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier is one of the most famed bouts in sports history. This promotional program, which is signed by Ali and dated October 1, 1975, details information about the boxers, events leading up to the match, and information on traveling to the Philippines. The match, which took place on Wednesday, October 1, 1975 at Araneta Coliseum in Manila, Philippines, was the culmination of a four-year feud between the boxing titans, resulting in a TKO win for Ali in the 14th round. This insert comes directly from the private collection of boxing promoter and telecommunications expert Henry "Hank" Schwartz.

Did You Know?
It was Muhammad Ali, through his infamous trash-talk that coined the 1975 Championship bout the "Thrilla in Manila." Ali would often engage in verbal assaults on his opponents well before a fight in a bit of psychological warfare to weaken their confidence. Ali stated that Frazier was "too dumb to be champion" and often commented on his shorter, stockier stature by referring to him as a gorilla. For the bout in the Philippines, Ali stated he would be a "Killa and a Thrilla and a Chilla, when I get that gorilla in Manila."

Program: 9" wide x 12" high
