1970-10-26 : Muhammad Ali 213½ lbs beat Jerry Quarry 197½ lbs by TKO in round 3 of 15

This was Ali's first fight in 3½ years. He was stripped of the World Heavyweight Championship and had his boxing license suspended after he refused to enter the military in 1967.

Ali opened a cut over Quarry's left eye with a right hand in the third round, which forced the fight to be stopped before the start of the fourth round.
