  • Description

    Muhammed Ali and Chuck Wepner have spoken about each other's style after their fight for the world heavyweight boxing championship.

    Ali retained his title with a technical knockout in the 15th round of their fight in Cleveland, Ohio, on Monday night (24 March).

    It was Ali's first defence of the title he regained from another American, George Forman in Zaire last October.

    The end came after 19 seconds of the last of the scheduled fifteen-round bout, with Ali clearly ahead on points at the time.

    Afterwards he accused Wepner of kicking and butting, but Wepner was full of praise for the champion.
