Classic Sports: The Rumble In The Jungle

In honor of yesterday being Muhammad Ali’s 73rd birthday we remember one of his greatest battles.

George Foreman defends the Heavyweight Championship of the World for the third time against former Champion, Muhammad Ali. Ali at 32, had been given little change against the fearsome puncher who had knocked out both Frazier and Norton, whom both had beaten ali in the past, in 2 rounds. The fight took place in Kinshasa, Zaïre (todays Congo), and was put together by promoter Don King. This is considered by many as the grea fight of Muhammad Alis career. The fight was called Fight of the Year for 1974.
