It was against professional wrestler Antonio Inoki and it wasn't so much his guard, They agreed to absurd rules that only allowed Inoki to kick if one hand was on the mat so Inoki basically crab walked or butt scooted around the entire time kicking the crap out of Ali's legs while Ali tried to goad him into standing up. The fight was called a draw but Ali's legs where bleeding and bruised and he suffered quite a few complications due to the sheer volume of leg kicks he absorbed.
