By Roger Stone In 1971 I was in College at George Washington University, a hot bed of student opposition to the war in Viet Nam. Needless to say Cassius Clay AKA Muhammad Ali was a revered figure for his attacks on the white power establishment and the Viet Nam War. " No Viet Cong ever called me a nigger" was his most famous quote. I was a fan of Philadelphia's Smokin' Joe Frazier, a most politically incorrect stance at GW at the time. Ali derided Frazier as an "Uncle Tom" and a tool of the white establishment. As their championship bout at Madison Square Garden neared I furiously made bets with my many long-haired college colleagues. I was, in many cases able to get 10-to-1 odds. Joe Frazier remains the only man to knock Muhammad Ali to the canvas and to seize the heavyweight title from Ali. He fought in an intermediary non-titled fight with Ali and then forfeited the "Thrilla in Manila" only at the 14th brutal round when his handlers insisted his swollen left eye could not see Ali's powerful right coming. It's interesting to note that Ali had left the ring to go to a hospital because it appeared as if Smokin' Joe had broken his jaw. At the victory parties Ali looked stiff and grimaced with pain, unable to shake hands. Frazier reportedly danced and sang including performing with his rock group "The Knockouts" performing their hit single "Knock on Wood". I won $11,000 from my stunned college classmates collecting on ridiculous, ideologically driven odds from the left wing student body at George Washington University. Years later at Donald Trump's wedding to Marla Maples, Trump seated my wife and I with the Champ and his wife. I told him of my good fortune. Smokin' Joe said it was a story he heard every day from guys who had recognized that he could beat Ali. Smokin' Joe Frazier goes down in my book as the greatest boxer of the Century.
