In his second defense of the Heavyweight Championship, Muhammad Ali takes on former champion Floyd Patterson. After dancing the entire first round, Ali begins to dominate Patterson with his jab. In round six, Ali finally opens up with an assault that forces Patterson to take a knee. With Patterson clearly fighting with a bad back and taking too much punishment, Referee Harold Krause finally calls a halt to the fight in the twelfth round.
