A quick post, before I forget. Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of one of the greatest prizefights in history, the Thrilla in Manila. The epic third fight between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier rocked the Araneta Coliseum to its foundations. I was too young to merit a ticket to the actual fight, but I did get to see them, for free, in their training sessions at the Folk Arts Theater. The Manila Times carried a Reuters story on the classic, but the Inquirer’s Recah Trinidad (a consummate reporter, and Tata Recs to many of us) wrote a masterpiece.
