1967.- Muhammad Ali at his very peak, defended his world heavyweight championship defeating an aging Zora Folley. The fight took place at Madison Square Garden New York. The Referee, Johnny LoBianco, stopped the action, punctuated by knockdowns, at minute one with 48 seconds of the 7th round. The Judges were Frank Forbes and Tony Castellano. Following this bout, Ali was stripped of his title, for refusing the draft to Vietnam Nam and was unjustly banned until 1970, when the U.S. Supreme Court finally overturned the ruling.
