Titles at Stake:
In one of the most anticipated fights of all time, Muhammad Ali again shocks the world by upsetting undefeated Heavyweight Champion George Foreman in Zaire. Employing what would become known as the "rope-a-dope" strategy, Ali lies on the ropes for much of the fight, goading Foreman into punching himself out. In the eighth round, Ali lets his hands go with pinpoint accuracy, sending Foreman to the canvas for the knockout and becoming only the second man to regain the Heavyweight Championship.
