Boxing writer Richie Giachetti called the fight, “…awful…the worst sports event I ever had to cover,” and spectator Sylvester Stallone likened the bout to “an autopsy on a man who is still alive.” Not even Holmes himself, who revered the once-mighty Champion, had been anxious to step into the ring with his idol, and he wept when it was over, seeking out the battered Ali after the painfully one-sided affair to beg his forgiveness. Hall of Fame trainer Angelo Dundee, who had mercifully ended the carnage with the toss of a towel after the tenth, pleaded with his most famous protege to retire, but Ali would step through the ring ropes once more, to accept another ten-round beating this being one of his last.
One thing had changed after nearly 60 odd bouts – The Brand Sponsors of His Trunks.As you can see by the image, we see very clearly the trunks bearing the prominent label of the “MacGregor” company that would supply Ali’s trunks for his final bout/s after a career-long association with Everlast.
