    One of the biggest fights of all time

    I still haven't seen the whole fight

    Ali proved himself to be one of the biggest jerks in sports history in talking smack beforehand and then trying to steal the victory from Frazier after it was over.

    He is one of the greatest athletes I have ever seen but also one of the biggest jerks
