Heavyweight boxers Muhammad Ali and Oscar Bonavena fought at Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 7, 1970. Ali won the bout, his first at the current Madison Square Garden, through a technical knockout in the 15th round.

According to Ferdie Pacheco, Ali absorbed more punishment in this particular fight than in any of his previous fights, and it was a mistake for Ali to have fought with Bonavena just before his first fight with Joe Frazier.

These amazing photos were taken by American photographer Bill Ray for LIFE magazine that show portraits of fans of Muhammad Ali at the Ali-Bonavena fight at Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 7, 1970.
