“Rumble in the Jungle” – Ali vs. Foreman

Without a doubt the most famous fight in the history of boxing, the "Rumble in the Jungle" brought together "Big George" and "The Louisville Lip" for an unforgetable night. At the outset, Ali was considered a "has been" by the press and his odds looked even worse in the light of Foreman's awe inspiring latest executions in the ring. But the fight evolved differently with Ali's strategic "rope-a-dope" technique which had exhausted Foreman and made him vulnerable to Ali's swift combinations untill at the 8th a hard right had sent Foreman to the canvas and although he made the count the referie stopped the fight and Ali was World champion for the unparalleled 3rd time
