Boxing – 1974 – Opposing Cornermen Dr Pacheco + Archie Moore Remember The Rumble In The Jungle

DOG ASIDE: 

Throughout the experience of posting some 2800 vintage video posts her at ImaSportsphile….I run across two men that were in opposing corners during the infamous Rumble in the Jungle….an international event that is “beyond legend” to boxing fans everywherre….and these two guys are talking for the first time in 16 years since Muhammad Ali met Big George Foreman in Zaire, Africa. 

This fight had global impact on so many levels…..like showcasing Zaire and Africa on television for the first time (to my recollection)….like Ali “shocking the world….again!!!”…..like the “rope a dope”…..like the children all over Africa having a hero who wasn’t given a chance….and so much more….and Dr. Ferdie Pacheco was in Ali’s corner…..and Archie Moore was in Big George Foreman’s corner…..and we’ve got their discussion on the video herewith….which is just one more “nugget of gold” in our treasure chest of vintage memories.
