long lost Muhammad Ali clip

This interview from “This is Your Life” was conducted on Christmas Day, 1978.  After the “Thrilla in Manilla” and the rivalry is finally put to rest, I find it incredibly interesting to see Ali and Frazier interact.  Watching this, I truly wish Muhammad Ali had stopped boxing and not gone after Larry Holmes and Trevor Berbick but eh, you do what you gotta do.  The part I find most chilling is Joe Louis message to Ali and the almost unbearable resemblance he shares with present-day Ali, now suffering from Parkinsons.

I have not been able to find the full interview online, but they do sell it on this website: http://www.radiofones.com/ali.htm
