Ali v Frazier: 31 years on

By Anthony Evans
There have been many super-fights in the 31 years since Muhammad Ali collided with Joe Frazier for the first time, but never again will there be a world heavyweight championship fight pitting two such fighters, both having equally legitimate claims to being the heavyweight champion of the world, against each other. Their clash at New York's brand new Madison Square Garden was equal to the hype and has held the public's imagination hostage for two generations. Ali v Frazier: 31 years on

Roy Jones Junior: Too late to be considered great?

One of the current talking points of the sport is that of WBC, IBF, IBO and WBA light-heavyweight Roy Jones Junior's opponents. At age 33 the eccentric three-division champion from Florida is winding down his career and the debate is heating up as to where Jones' career accomplishments rank as compared to those of Ali, Louis, Robinson and Duran. Roy Jones Junior: Too late to be considered great?

Feedback: Jones Junior has much to do

In the latest In This Corner SecondsOut: Legends' writers Anthony Evans and Paul Upham went at it over the subject of Roy Jones.

Holmes (pictured with the belt), a former sparring partner of 'The Greatest,' Muhammad Ali, was indeed a fine champion. The 'Easton Assassin,' as he was known, was an impressive all-round technician with a lightning fast jab that even then was accepted as one of the finest in history. Larry Holmes vs Gerry Cooney
