THRILLA IN MANILA

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

ABC2, Sun­day, 8.30pm ★★★★ Whenwe Were Kings, which de­tails Muhammad Ali’s heavy­weight bout against Ge­orge Fore­man in Zaire in 1974, is one of the best sports doc­u­men­taries. Thrilla in Manila al­most matches it. Ali turned on his one-time friend Joe Fra­zier, be­lit­tling him and fu­elling a ha­tred that con­sumed both fight­ers.
