Muhammad Ali On George Foreman Before Their Fight In Zaire On October 30, 1974


The Heavyweight Championship Title Fight on October 30, 1974 between Champ George Foreman vs Muhammad Ali…..was billed as “The Rumble in the Jungle”…but became “The Hope of the Rope A Dope”…..as Ali laid back against the ropes for the first 6 rounds letting Foreman hit him with big bombs that did nothing but wear Big George out….and that is when Ali came to life….knocking out Foreman in the 8th round….creating the biggest surprise in boxing history since he decked Sonny Liston on February 25, 1964….some 10 years before.
