Agreed I think people forget how good that fight actually was because of McLellans injurys... loved that decade of boxing
The best but most wont remember match between champion Joe Frazier (26-0, 23 KO's) and Ali (31-0, 25 KOs), in 1971 at Madison Square Gardens. All sorts of political undertones in the build up as well.
Couldn't agree more, best fight I've ever watched. Such a shame that the tragic conclusion overshadowed the fight itself. Makes it hard to watch again knowing what you're actually witnessing.

I went to watch Lewis v Bruno at the old Cardiff Arms park... was a good night that!
