JOE FRAZIER vs. GEORGE FOREMAN 2 (Closed Circuit) 

Description : Here we have an original vintage closed circuit poster from the 2nd fight between the two former world heavyweight champions.

1st fight, Frazier lost his undefeated record of 290 and his world championship, at the hands of the unbeaten George Foreman on January 22, 1973, in Kingston, Jamaica. Despite Frazier being the overall favorite, Foreman towered 4" over the shorter, more compact champion and soon dominated the brief bout as Frazier came in too open. Two minutes into the first round, Frazier was knocked down. After he was knocked down a sixth time in the second round referee Arthur Mercante, Sr. stopped the contest. It was the first two knockdowns that were decisive.

In 1976, Frazier (323) personally wished to retry against George Foreman. With a shaved head for a new image Frazier fought well enough, somewhat more restrained than usual, avoiding walking onto the big shots which he had done in their first match. However, Foreman awaited his moment and then lobbed in one tremendous left hook that lifted Frazier off his feet. After a second knock down it was stopped in the fifth. Shortly after the fight, Frazier announced his retirement.
