If the referee chose not to do it, that's how it goes, and the outcome of the fight is the outcome of the fight. Me, personally, I'd have penalized and threw out the banned substance and the cornerman in question. But it wasn't me. I don't like throwing out the outcomes of fights. This fight was decided by punches thrown and received, and that should stand wherever possible. Ring justice.
Since when was the usage of supplements in the middle of a boxing match justice? Like you where saying earlier, it gives an unfair advantage to Ali therefore he should have been disqualified. If you where the ref and was aware of what was going down in the corner, you wouldn't be doing your job correctly if you deducted a point and threw the salts away.
