1966-03-29 Muhammad Ali w pts 15 George Chuvalo, Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto, Canada - WBC. Referee: Jackie Silvers. Scorecards: 73-65, 74-64, 74-63. Although Chuvalo (216) put up a courageous show in forcing Ali (214½) to travel the distance, the challenger won only one round at best, the second, and from the third onwards he seemed to be on the end of anything thrown his way. Cut over the left eye in the sixth, Chuvalo’s right eye was also damaged by the 14th and at the final bell both eyes were almost closed shut. It was testament to Chuvalo’s strength and courage that he remained on his feet throughout the contest despite being hit with lefts and rights at will on occasion, while his best shots barely made Ali blink.
