Best Answer

The "Fight Of The Century" was the first meeting of two undefeated heavyweight champions, since Ali (31-0) had not lost his title in the ring (been stripped because of his refusal to be inducted in the Armed Forces) and Joe Frazier (26-0, 23 KOs). It took place in New York City, New York March 8, 1971, at Madison Square Garden. Frazier won by unanimous decision and retained the title.
