Overview

Zora Folley, professional boxer from Chandler, got his shot at the heavyweight title when he fought Muhammad Ali on March 22, 1967, in New York’s Madison Square Garden. With the television broadcast blacked out, and without a radio broadcast, it looked like Chandler residents would miss out on their hometown hero’s biggest moment. “Fight Night in Chandler: March 22, 1967” tells the story of how Chandlerites were able to overcome these obstacles and find a unique way to experience the biggest fight night in Chandler history.
