The Fight of the Century
Recently I was awakened with the phrase ‘the fight of the century’ in my mind. Soon I remembered how that was the title used for the initial boxing match between undefeated heavy weight champion’s Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali. The fight took place March 8, 1971 at Madison Square Garden and would decide who would reign as the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
Largely due to the buildup, the fight drew interest and was watched around the world. It was reported how even the political turmoil and rioting taking place in Norther Ireland at the time temporarily came to a standstill because almost the entire nation was tuned in to the fight. After fifteen electrifying rounds Joe Frazier would be crowned as the winner of the Fight of the Century by a unanimous decision.
Reliving and remembering that moment in my living room watching the fight with my dad was a pleasant memory. However I was fully aware that what the Lord was saying to me was how what is taking place in this hour is without a doubt our fight of the century, and the stakes could not be higher. I was reminded how in this current fight only one winner will come out on top. Therefore we must fight (in prayer) so as to win.
“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it” (I Cor 9:24).
