Foreman catches Frazier flush on the forehead in that fifth and final round on June 16, 1976. Frazier retired after the loss, but did come out of retirement to fight Floyd Cummings in 1981 — a draw that marked Frazier's final bout.

After losing his title to George Foreman in two brutal rounds on Jan. 22, 1973 in Kingston, Jamaica, Frazier (left) shaved his head for this rematch at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., on June 15, 1976. But Foreman won this one as well, stopping Frazier in the fifth round.

In one of the legendary heavyweight bouts of all time, Frazier and Ali duke it out in the sweltering heat of Manila, the Philippines, in their third fight, on Oct. 1, 1975. It was the "Thrilla in Manila," and Ali took the pair's rubber match — retaining his title when Frazier's cornermen refused to allow their exhausted warrior to answer the bell for the 15th round.

The vastly different styles of Frazier (right) and Ali are on display in this moment from their second fight. Where Ali famously floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee, Frazier was a straight-ahead bull, a counter-puncher who often took a blow in order to set himself up to deliver a harder one.

Frazier gets tagged by Ali in their rematch, also at Madison Square Garden, on Jan. 28, 1974. Ali won this bout on a 12-round unanimous decision, but there was no title on the line — Frazier having lost his crown to George Foreman a year earlier.

Referee Arthur Mercante directs Frazier to a neutral corner as a dazed Ali gathers his wits following that 15th-round knockdown on March 8, 1971. Frazier paid a price, as well, taking  quite a beating himself in this first of three legendary wars with Ali.

Joe Frazier lands a ferocious left hook that sends Muhammad Ali to the canvas in the 15th round of their first fight — on March 8, 1971 at Madison Square Garden. Ali got up at the count of four, but Frazier won a 15-round decision to retain the heavyweight title. The bout marked the first time two undefeated heavyweight champions ever fought for the title — in this case Ali was an ex-champ, having been stripped of his title for refusing to be drafted into the military.
