When we were Kings!

I remember watching as a kid and being terrified of the commentary. Can't remember if it was Harry or Reg but they geuninely feared Ali was going to be killed and were pleading almost begging for him to get off the ropes. After watching the fight again and again it seems clear to me Ali has taken control by the end of the first round. I know we have the benefit of hindsight but that is how it looks to me now.

One thing I do remember and can still see is how scared Ali was in the first round. His eyes were wide open and he threw 12 right leads. I don't think that was pre planned. I think that was fear and prime evil forces.
