Picture Trivia
          On October 30, 1974, Muhammad Ali did what most sports analyst thought was an “impossible task” when he knocked out George Foreman, the hardest puncher in heavyweight boxing history, in the eighth round of their title fight in Kinshasa, Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo), dubbed the “Rumble in the Jungle.” After this fight, Ali cemented his pedestal for the nickname “The Greatest.”
          After the Foreman fight, Ali fought three boxers in 1975, Chuck Wepner, Ron Lyle, Joe Bugner, before his third fight with Joe Frazier on October 1, 1975, in the “Thrilla in Manila,” where he won by technical knockout.
