The article predicts the result of the heavyweight boxing championship fight between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. According to the author, Ali is in a better position to win the third fight between the two boxers since the fear of losing will be on Frazier's mind and the advantage of confidence will be on Ali's side. He expects Ali to defeat Frazier in the third round. He argues that Ali is old enough to know that he should not be playing with the crowd but focusing on the fight.
