Ali vs. Folley, Madison Square Garden, New York, March 22, 1967: The 25-year-old champion had more on his mind that night than Zora Folley. Convicted of draft evasion three months after the fight, he lost 43 months of his athletic prime while mired in legal battles before he could box again. Nevertheless, Folley was knocked out in the seventh round. Despite the seemingly insurmountable odds, Ali returned to conquer the boxing world in spectacular fashion three years later.
