Muhammad Ali Knocks Out Brian London In Round 3 To Retain World Heavyweight Title – August 6, 1966 (This Day In Boxing History)
In front of a crowd of 13,000 people, Muhammad “The Greatest” Ali landed a right hand to Brian London’s jaw, and, just under two minutes of the third round, the bout was already over.
Ali defended his world heavyweight title belt with a flurry of punches, dropping the British challenger in the corner of the ring at the Earls Court Arena in London.
The Hall of Famer boxer went on to win six more, but his winning streak was snapped by another all-time great, Joe Frazier.
Still, Ali lost only five fights compared to his 56 victories and 37 knockouts.
London finished his career with 37 wins, 26 knockouts and 20 losses.
