In a heavyweight unification bout, Muhammad Ali, the WBC champion, defeats Ernie Terrell, the WBA heavyweight champion, in a unanimous decision at the Houston Astrodome. The fight made Ali unpopular as he tormented the overmatched Terrell, repeatedly yelling, “What’s My Name” as he beat him for 15 rounds but refused to knock him out, choosing instead to continue the beating for the length of the fight.
