EXCERPT

Forty years ago, on October 30, 1974, two American heavyweights slugged it out in Zaire - today's Democratic Republic of Congo — in a historic boxing match.

“The Rumble in the Jungle,” as the fight was advertised in the U.S. and abroad, matched former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali against the reigning champ, George Foreman. Ali knocked Foreman out to regain the
crown, which he had lost seven years earlier when the U.S. government accused him of draft-dodging and boxing officials revoked his license.
