I  remember thinking Ali had a chance against Holmes.  I was not able to order that on PPV (as you had to go to a theater back then) and I was crestfallen when I got the Star Ledger the next morning to see Ali on the front page, slumped on his stool.
I still have that paper.

T-Bolt, I think Ali took a shitload of pounding against Frazier, particularly in Manila and that took a bit out of him.  The Shavers fight in 1977 was really Ali's last great fight.
