Old Photos: Ali Vs. Bonavena at the Madison Square Garden

On December 7, 1970 Mohammad Ali fought Oscar Bonavena at the Madison Square Garden.

*even if you don’t like boxing you should watch this video all the way to the end.

I am not a fan of boxing but I am posting these photos just for the awesome 1970 outfits people were wearing to the fight.
