1974: The "Rumble in the Jungle" boxing match between undefeated world heavyweight champion George Foreman and former world champion and challenger Muhammad Ali takes place in Kinshasa, Zaire. Ali won by knocking out Foreman in the eighth round. The fight was originally set to take place in September, but Foreman was injured and cut near his eye during training, pushing the fight back. While the fight took place in the early morning hours of Oct. 30 in Zaire, it was still Oct. 29 when it was shown live in America, as this poster shows.
