  • Description

    When Joe Frazier invited newsmen to lunch at a swanky Manhattan restaurant on Tuesday ( 26 August), who should turn up but ... you've guessed it ... Muhammad Ali and his entourage of hangers on.

    While fighter promoter Don King stood by grinning from ear to ear, Ali and his boys gate-crashed the luncheon party with their usual wisecracks and dressed in their Manila Gorilla t-shirts.

    The heavyweights will meet in their third match in Manila on the first of October and Ali ways he's got no doubts who'll win this deciding match. Up to now both boys have one a piece to their credit. Reporter Andy Macmillan was one of the newsmen who missed out on a free lunch that day. A transcript of his commentary is provided on page two.
