No CCTV Sunday #14 Muhammad Ali in Malaysia

The other day my dad told me that the Muhammad Ali, the man who is widely considered to be one of the best heavyweight boxing champions ever, was in Malaysia in 1975 and had fought Briton Joe Bugner.

Here are what I got from the net, it is rather interesting;

The match was held in Merdeka Stadium, Kuala Lumpur.

Most videos of the fight had disallowed embedding but you can search to see for yourself how Muhammad Ali float like a butterfly, sting like a bee in Kuala Lumpur.

The fight is great to watch but at the same time I am truly impressed and intrigued by those round card girls dressed up in their traditional costumes.

In video " Muhammad Ali vs Joe Bugner 2 (1975) Rounds 2and3 " I had spotted card girls dressed in Malay, Chinese and Kadazan traditional costumes. It is beyond cool! Way beyond cool!

Now, who had actually won the fight? Why don't you find out for yourself?
