Muhammad Ali -vs- Oscar Bonavena 12/7/70 part 1



ah jolly as he circles steadily to the left much Bonavena trying to cut the ring on right now he'll wear cod to all these midsection if he can't Holly will use the left jabs counting on the swiftness is a brawler Bonavena occasionally under strategies taught to him by Clancy I'll try to retreat to a corner lure Polly in and then go right to that midsection if he can't take the cup fight clean gringo claiming that Ally shoved him down bring go in the blue trunks with the red waistband ollie the red trunks with the white waistband and white side trim see lingos named on his pants we're coming up to the two-minute mark in round one at left of Bonavena is connected on alleys right job this is not picture fighting such as early as usko it's not easy against Bonavena look at that is like an alley brawl as far as Oscars concern 20 seconds to go in the first round no sign yet of the Olly skills really against this time to fight the old ollies film other warning from Lord yank Durham as we go to Bonavena the crowd yelling foreign against Oscar and for his tactics in that first round your view of it if you will yank what I think bond Davina got the best to play there in exchange he came out moving around but played a definite don't have what he had before I can see that now it's no problem in my mind it bill easy fight for me and clay is in for a rough night they both are using tasak yellow rough magic their players pushing in sharing let's watch this in slow motion we're going to see the slip there it is that's when Ringo got up and claimed that Ollie pushed him down there's no doubt in my live action you fell he pushed them he did push him down you know you're not guilty of bias because you're precious I know there's a matter actually saw the push there all right we are eight await the start of round two now let's see if Ally can get some of that old Ollie movement in as we start round two the worst fight I ever saw Bonavena fight and was made that way formed by Jimmy Ellis was against Jimmy Ellis in early December of 1967 during the WBA elimination tournament when Ellis clawed him twice Bonavena was very effective against miltenberg of the German southpaw over in Frankfort West German Bonavena is in the center of that ring he's cutting the ring on Holly and oddly I don't see Ollie circling with the steadiness and swiftness to the left that's his usual land mode prising absence of movement knowledge up to this point fight is very young Nancy Durham is keeping an unofficial scorecard on the fight for this reporter as he views it yankov thoughts Frazier's manager sitting next to me at ringside Speight has been taking place largely in race center and this is not the usual alley style at all as it used to exist and even as it was when he came out so swiftly and round one against Jerry quarry in Atlanta Georgia some six weeks ago come on night-night down to the end of round do nothing real in the way of action as you have seen with the edge in this round I would suspect going to alley gonna be not throwing much luck second don't be late Oh clapping cool the end of round two let's follow my very very odd so far it seems to me Yancey Durham as we look at Muhammad in this corner how do you account for the relative absence of movement and swiftness so far what as I said if a Bonavena crowd clay clay doesn't have the movement he knows in therefore a tough fight and Bonavena is fighting to fight that I thought he would fight he just need to pick up his feet a little bit more and I think clay is gonna be in serious trouble standing still like years he's not impressive tonight at all what is moving and he's afraid to move because praise beginning to he's worried a little bit well let's watch this we're watching in slow motion now and as Mohammed comes over a wave of discussed with Bonavena apparently on p1 himself

  • Soy argentino, pero admito que Ali fue superior en esta pelea, y en resumen Ali fue mejor peleador que mi Ringo, mi compatriota dió hasta lástima cuando peleó con este negro. Mi ringo tenia poca y mediocre tecnica, Ali el mejor pegador y mas boxeador indiscutiblemente..Debemos admitirlo ..Mi ringo dio lastima ante el mas grande …Admitamoslo compatriotas

  • Bonavena fue un tremendo pelotudo en probocar, humillar previo ala pelea todos se comieron el verso de los 15 rounds fue asi xq Ali kiso y keria pegarle, castigarlo hasta el.final Bonavena era limitado eso si con un gran carisma.

  • Yo vi esta pela (en aquel entonces por via satelite y en blaco y negro por canal 13 creo) tenia 10 años y ese dia el pais se paralizo por ese combate de de como se venia propagando ,en el colagio estabamos todos alborotados ,por las calles ,los comercios ,medios peridisticos no hacian mas que comentar ese hecho, Bonavema humillo y trato de gallina a Ali ,lo cargo hasta donde mas pudo ,esto paso en la conferencia de prensa hasta que en un momento Ali se saca la b ata y Ringo lo desprecia tapandoce la nariz ,ahi reacciono furiosamente Ali y le dijo te voy a castigar y lastimar anda sabiendolo el Lunes a la noche ,Ringo de reia, en un momento de descuido Ali lo va a buscar(entre otras cosas que pasaron ) estaban los dos solitos sentados Ali le dice yo te peleo ahora mismo Ringo le toco el brazo y Muhammad lo agarro del culello y los separaron inmediatamente la cosa esta muy calentita antes del combate por el condimento que le puso Ringo,bueno Ali predijo un nocaut en el 9 y casi Osacar lo noquea de un cross de Izquierda , en el cuarto round de ese pelea Oscar lo tuvo muy mal por un boleo de derecha que dio de lleno en la pera de Ali y domino todo ese asalto castigandolo como quizo ,en el quinto lo tuvo a mal traer al round siguiente del 9 ali seguia sentido ,pero Ringo ya se estaba quedando sin la potencia de los otros rounds Ali lo amarro y lo hiso cansar Ringo podia haber perdido por punto y un descuido se fue a la lona por un cross de izquierda de Ali que llego primero en ese cruce,Oscar admitio luego que se cayo de cansado porque habria recibido golpes muchos mas fuerte durante la pela Muhammad cometio todo tipo dce infracciones amarrando a Ringo antireglamentariamente y cuando este se fue a la lona no respeto el rincon neutral.Le habian dicho a Oscar en el ultimo Round cuidate" y Ringo dijo salgo a matar o morir y murio de pie como los grandes idolos .

  • We notice quickly that Ali is not the same as before and his best period is over.He suffers many more punches than before.
    He no longer has the amazing speed and agility of movements and exceptional footwork that made him uncatchable.
    Three years of inactivity is an eternity for every boxer, for even the greatest boxer of all time.

  • Muy bien Mohamad Ali, soy Argentino y banco a Bonavena pero Ali fue mejor. pero Frazier fue mucho mejor que Ali. lejos.

  • It's funny how in every video related to Argentina there's a Mexican talking shit about us. They hate USA and they live there. They hate us and they're always worried about what we do. Fucking browns

  • Ringo era guapo, iba siempre al frente, y aguantaba todos los golpes pero nunca me convenció..Alí me parece el mejor boxeador de todos los tiempos, llevó el boxeo a otro nivel. 

  • @ devilemperor123 Y tambien en la historia: Batistuta, Di Stefano, Tarantini,  Passarella, Bertoni, Caniggia, Simeone, Palermo, Messi, Pastore, la Sabattini, el campeon del mundo 5 veces de la formula 1: Fangio etc, etc ademas el papa Francisco (Jose Mario Bergoglio) el campeon del mundo con Italia el 2006 Camoranesi (argentino q  se nacionalizo italiano x el bisabuelo)…son infinitos los tanos-argentinos son millones de millones.

  • UNO DE LOS PROBLEMAS DE RINGO ERA QUE TENIA PIES PLANOS,ES LA RAZON QUE NO HABIA MUCHA ESTABILIDAD EN SU CUERPO

  • Lo siento, dije eso al otro chico porque llamo mexicano a Bonavena, y los mexicanos no tienen nombre italiano pero los argentinos si. Recuerdo del basketball, Scola, Ginobili, Nocioni…solo eso.

  • We argentinians are not "spanish" nor italian, most of us are descendants of european immigrants, we have spanish, italian, french, english, portuguese, german and poland last names. We speak spanish, since we were a spanish colony, but we are not spanish… 🙂 And you forgot Diego Armando Maradona.

  • Si le faltara algo al Ringo, Ali lo mataba… Simplemente era mejor que Bonavena y listo… Aguante el ringo hoy y siempre, guapo si los hay…

  • @Manuel Rivera ustedes siempre con sus excusas una derrota es una derrota. Classico Argentino que no acepta la derrota.

  • lo sobro toda la pelea, cassius un grande, le ganaba a cualquiera donde fuera, pobre ringo era como un titere en el ring

  • Somos del barrio de la Quema, Somos del barrio de Ringo Bonavena!

    GRANDE RINGO, SIEMPRE EN EL CORAZÓN DE LOS PIBES!
    PARQUE PATRICIOS SIEMPRE SERÁ TU CASA!
