Many fight fans and scribes call it the greatest match in boxing history. Ali won in the end, and Frazier expressed it best right after. “Man, I hit him with punches that would bring down the walls of a city,” he said. “Lawdy, lawdy, he’s a great champion.” Celebrate this fight and the two amazing combatants with the new Roots of Fight Thrilla Souvenir Triblend Shirt.
