“The greatest Ali ever was as a fighter was in Houston against Williams. That night, he was the most devastating fighter who ever lived.”
– Broadcaster Howard Cosell.
Muhammad Ali floored plodding 33-year-old Cleveland Williams four times and stopped him in the third round #OnThisDay in 1966 in the seventh defence of his world heavyweight title.
Williams, who still had a policeman’s bullet in his body after a scuffle with a Texas highway patrolman in 1964 and was lucky to be alive, was no match for the undefeated 24-year-old champion. “I made one big mistake,” said Williams. “I dropped my left hand and he nailed me. I don’t know why I did it.”
