Ali vs Patterson I 1965

  • November 22, 1965
  • 90 mins

Since being defeated twice by Sonny Liston, Floyd Patterson had rebuilt both his career and his confidence. Ali did not take Patterson lightly. The prevailing climate in America was against him. Floyd was seen as the white-establishments choice for champion. Patterson had said he was going to win the title back “for America.” This infuriated Ali, who took the remark to mean that as a Muslim he was somehow not American.
