The fight took place in Kinshasa, Zaïre (todays Congo), and was put together by promotor Don King. This is considered by many as the most significent fight of Muhammad Alis career. The fight was called Fight of the Year for 1974.

  • "the fact that he didn't hit me when I was going down makes him the greatest in my mind" _ George foreman

  • Before he died, all his organs stopped, only his heart continued to beat for about 30 minutes. Too much Greatness. Rest In Peace G.O.A.T.

  • “Muhammad Ali has won, Muhammed Ali has won by a knockdown by a knockdown the the thing they say was impossible he’s done” goosebump moment 💯

  • I love Forman’s later interview when he spoke about Ali’s trash talk. Foreman said after landing a big shot on Ali, he said “I thought you could punch George. Is that as hard as you can hit?”. Foreman said he thought to himself “Yep. That’s just about it.” Ali is the greatest.

  • I was 11, and I still feel the excitement of this incredible fight as if it was yesterday. I even named my son after Muhammed Ali. God bless him!

  • Man, Foreman was 40-0 with 37 KOs at this point, and in such a contentious era. He even made short work of Frazier, and then Ali did this to him. Incredible. Goes to show how great Ali was, but also how different styles/strategies bounce off each other. Boxing is like chess, except you're trying to bash each other's face in. lol

  • “I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” - Muhammad Ali

  • Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. His hands can’t hit what his eyes can’t see. Now you see me, now you don’t. George thinks he will, but I know he won’t.” - Muhammad Ali

  • Ali was a genius in the ring. Remember, he didn’t take advice from his corner, in training or the fight. He was totally instinctive.

  • "I thought Ali was just one more knockout victim until, about the seventh round, I hit him hard to the jaw and he held me and whispered in my ear: 'That all you got, George?' I realized that this ain't what I thought it was." -George Foreman.

  • Frazier thought Ali was making a mistake staying on the ropes. Ali’s gameplan was so masterful that Frazier couldn’t even see it. He really thought foreman was hurting Ali with those punches😂
