Background: Muhammad Ali won a unanimous decision over George Chuvalo in Vancouver, British Columbia on Sunday night (1 May). Ali, the former world heavyweight champion, danced about the ring throughout the 12 round bout. Although Ali stunned Chuvalo repeatedly with left jabs and right crosses, he was unable to stop the determined Canadian titleholder.
Chuvalo continually tried to force Ali into the ropes where he might land telling punches. But the agile Ali continually danced out of reach.
The bout was similar to the first meeting these two fighters had in 1966 when Ali defeated Chuvalo in a 15 round world title fight in Toronto.
