Ali defended his WBC & WBA world heavyweight titles against Lyle at The Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Ali was behind on points when he decided to get up on his toes and wear Lyle down with pure boxing. Lyle soaked up Ali's right hands over his ponderous jab until the 11th round when one of these right hands detonated squarely on target and Lyle fell into the ropes. Ali attacked full force until referee Ferd Hernandez stopped the battering at 1:08 of the round.
