4/4. The Closest Thing to Dying. Telling the story of what is considered the greatest fight of all time -the 1975 "Thrilla in Manila" between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.

Frazier, an Olympic hero, had to endure the scorn and derision of his own race fuelled by Ali's slurs. When the two entered the ring, bitterness had become hatred, but had the demands of the audience and the enmity between the fighters gone too far?
