Rumble in the Jungle

The Rumble in the Jungle was a historic boxing event in Kinshasa, Zaire (now Democratic Republic of the Congo) on October 30, 1974. Held at the 20th of May Stadium, it pitted the undefeated world heavyweight champion George Foreman against challenger Muhammad Ali, the former heavyweight champion.

It has been called "arguably the greatest sporting event of the 20th century". It was a major upset victory, with Ali coming in as a 4–1 underdog against the unbeaten, heavy-hitting Foreman. The fight is famous for Ali's introduction of the rope-a-dope tactic: as the second round commenced, Ali began to lean on the ropes and cover up, letting Foreman punch him on the arms and body.

As a result, Foreman spent his energy throwing punches. As the fight drew into the eighth round, Foreman's punching and defense became ineffective as the strain of throwing so many wild shots had taken its toll. Ali pounced as Foreman tried to pin Ali on the ropes, landing several right hooks over Foreman's jab, followed by a 5-punch combination, culminating in a left hook that brought Foreman's head up into position and a hard right straight to the face that caused Foreman to stumble to the canvas.

The fight was watched by 60,000 people at the stadium and a record estimated television audience of 1 billion viewers worldwide, becoming the world's most-watched live television broadcast at the time.
