Description

_

I wrote this book, for, the story of the "Thrilla In Manila" was filled with action, drama and emotion, not witnessed anywhere in sport!

Read about this death-defying fourteen round battle, which over-whelmed the millions of boxing fans and all that had a part to play in it. This awe-inspiring sporting spectacle produced a level of fighting and a standard of boxing that was never again witnessed, and even now, forty-three years later, it is not likely to be equaled!

The clinical analysis of the "Thrilla In Manila", in this book, serves as a boxing manual where many important points on professional boxing are alluded to. It a great book for every aspiring boxer or trainer to gain knowledge at the highest level of this "sweet science", involving two of its most prolific performers, and the best boxing trainers of the time!

The opening passages of this book cover the early developmental stages of Smokin Joe Frazier as a boxer. It traverses through his career, his Olympic Gold Medal victory and his wresting of the World Heavyweight Championship, in 1970. It then describes how he helped Ali regain his boxing license, and their first fight - "The Fight of the Century".

Much has been provided about Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier's remarkable boxing assets and their persona;l attributes, the intense rivalry between them, and how they matched up technically in the ring.

The book then provides a detailed and stirring account of boxing's greatest fight - "The Thrilla in Manila". It relives the excitement, emotions, and anticipation of the millions of boxing fans, and the skill, guts, glory, and determination that drove two of boxing's best prizefighters to contest this championship bout close to the point of death!

So much emotion and excitement prevailed from its buildup and through to the fight, that the fans, referee, judges, cornermen of the fighters, boxing commentators and sports writers, were overwhelmed by the occasion, many of whom were left spellbound!

The fiery exchanges in the early and middle rounds were quite incredible. And the drama and tension of the closing rounds were unbelievable! At the climax of this memorable bout, both fighters quit on their stools at the end of the fourteenth round, unable to fight the fifteenth and last round!

And there was more to come at the post-fight conference when one of the fighters could not walk without assistance! This was the impact of the "Thrilla In Manila" boxing's greatest fight!

The author

Ramesh Kumarr

The author, Ramesh Kumarr, based in Johannesburg, South Africa, spent 20 years as a Software Engineer and Senior Systems Designer. He is a boxing connoisseur, sports strategist, and a mental conditioning consultant. He is currently authoring books.

This is his first sports book, now in the process of being published. He started following boxing some 46 years ago at the age of ten. He has a huge collection of boxing fight films and international boxing magazines. He has met several world champion boxers, and has worked with a few of them on his "CosmoSportz" Mental Conditioning Programme, which he established in 1988. As a steadfast Frazier fan, he corresponded several times with Smokin Joe in the late seventies and early eighties. He has had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Eddie Futch, Smokin Joe's trainer and chief-second in the "Thrilla In Manila", in 1979, in an hour-long discussion, where 40 minutes was spent discussing the "Thrilla In Manila".

In 2013, Ramesh Kumarr was invited by Smokin Joe's family members to attend his third International Hall-of-Fame induction, (posthumous) in Pennsylvania, USA, on 19 November, 2013.

1. How long have you been writing?

I started writing about twenty years ago. I began by writing short articles in the letters columns of newspapers. I have written on sports and social issues. But my first book, I started writing about 10 years ago. It is a history book. This is due to be published soon. My boxing book, I started writing about 4 years ago. I also wrote a book on Asian culture, which is due for completion in a few weeks time.

2. Why did you decide to write this book?

From my early youth, I have been a bookworm and a sports enthusiast. And of all sporting events I witnessed, or got know of, there are two that standout as the pinnacles of sporting events - the Bjorn Borg and John Mc Enroe tennis match and the "Thrilla in Manila". No other sporting events that I can recall created such excitement, suspense, and drama than these two matches. And of the two, the "Thrilla in Manila", is certainly the number one, as it involved combat action, also that, both contestants were physically spent and did not complete the last round!

3. How long did it take you to write this book?

My book "Smokin Joe Frazier In The Thrilla In Manila - Relived" took me about thirty months to complete. Since it is a clinical analysis of the best-ever fight, I had to conduct deep research into its prelude, the live proceedings of the fight, and its aftermath.

4. What do you want to transmit to your readers?

I would like readers and all sports-lovers to experience and relish this fine moment in sporting history - which many regard as the pinnacle of sporting events - and to savour the excitement, spellbinding tense moments, thrills, anticipation, and the drama, that consumed most of the global populace at the time, as, for weeks, this fight and its aftermath captured the hearts and minds of people the world over like none other. It was a time when the world literally stood still in anticipation and boxing fervour. The information in this book will enlighten and inspire not only active sportsmen, sports fans, and sports trainers, but all people to lift their game and reach their goals.

5. Are you writing any other books at the moment?

I am writing another book, on Asian culture, due for completion soon.
6. What advice can you give to new writers who want to make their dream of publishing a book a reality?

Firstly, write with a conviction and be fully confident. Make sure you have a strong theme or plot and keep to your theme or plot. With a non-fiction book, research carefully all your key points. And lastly, writing only happens if you start writing. Do not worry if it does not appear to be perfect, as, all books begin with a draft copy which usually changes much before the final manuscript! Get something on "paper" first!

7. Lastly, what is your favourite book?

My favourite book is, "The Great Gatsby".
