I'm going to look it up now, I also recall it being sort of kept out of mainstream media news. Please don't call me out on this it's from my vague memory- just trying to add to the topic!
thats pretty interesting, i found a link to an article about the fight between ali and the japanese wrestler

the fight was completely uneventful and was considered a draw. ali's boxing was completely nullified though as he only landed around 15 punches in 15 rounds, so i don't know how ali didn't lose.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!
