1977-05-16 Muhammad Ali w pts 15 Alfredo Evangelista, Capital Centre Landover, Maryland, USA - WORLD. Referee: Harry Cecchini. Scorecards: 71-65, 72-64, 72-64. In a fast-paced bout, the champion was happy to get back to his boxing, moving well on the back foot and scoring with solid jabs as Evangelista (209½) tried to walk him down in a straight line. Occasionally Evangelista scored with good right hands and mixed his punches up well, but Ali (221¼) was never at risk as he sauntered to a fairly comfortable points win.
