( 33 - 9 - 0 )

With the prospect of his third meeting with arch-rival Ken Norton looming, Ali took a slightly easier option for the 7th defence of the WBC & WBA world heavyweight title he won from George Foreman in Zaire in October 1974 when he travelled to The Olympiahalle in Munich, Bayern, Germany to face Englishman Richard Dunn.

Dunn, a southpaw from Yorkshire was no match for Ali and did well to survive multiple knockdowns, three times in the fourth and twice in the fifth.

Referee Herbert Tomser counted Dunn out at 2:05 of the 5th round.

Incidentally, this was the last time Ali would ever win a bout by knockout.
