Todays request comes from Sean Smithson the hilarious Office Inbetweener – which you can read here!
Sean asked for an image of Ali v Frazier at a weigh-in relating to one of their Titanic clashes in the 70’s. Sadly we couldn’t find a suitable one.
Instead we bring to your attention the lesser known fact that during the Thriller in Manila, Frazier to goad Ali strapped a freshly roasted chicken to his head. The bobbin’ carcass infuriated Ali to such an extent that the “Greatest” took revenge in Round 8 with a furious assault of punches that were it not for the chinstrap, would have seen the first orbit of the Earth by a roast chicken.
Upon seeing the demolition of Frazier and his poultry, George Foreman had second thoughts about a rematch of the Rumble in The Jungle. The fight which would have been known as the “Barbecue in Timbuktu” instead afforded Foreman the idea of his now famous Low Fat Grill. As Foreman said at the time “There was no way I was going to take a lickin, so decided instead to grill my chicken.”
The rest as they say is history.
IS THERE ANYBODY OR ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE ATTACHED TO A SAUSAGE?
