Atlantic City’s Young (21-2, 8 KO) started fast in this one, coming out and putting pressure on Ali (27-3, 14 KO) from the get-go, connecting on some good power shots in the first round, and controlling the pace and action of the fight.

Young hurt Ali with a body shot in the third round and just kept connecting on power punches, eventually leading referee Robert Byrd no choice but to step in and stop the fight at 2:38 of the third round, as Ali just wasn’t fighting back enough and wasn’t competitive.
