I have mentioned before that I went to both fights at the Astrodome. The Astrodome was new then, and Ali was being shunned throughout the country over the draft issue. A scheduled fight at a Chicago venue was cancelled by then Mayor Richard Daley and that is how the Astrodome got not one, but two fights.

During this period, Ali claimed residence in H-Town and here is where he refused to be inducted into the military. He was tried and convicted in H-Town. 

They showed part of the fights last night and it was cool to see the old Gulf sign in the background.
