The former champ was far from competitive against the in-his-prime Holmes, who was declared the winner by TKO in the 11th round after trainer Angelo Dundee refused to let Ali continue to get pummeled. Holmes had this to say about Ali, his former mentor: "After the fight was all over, I went to his room and he was lying in the bed, getting massaged. I said, `I love you, man.' He says, `If you love me, why you beat me up like that?'"
