(MENAFN - Morocco World News) The fight took place in 1974. George Foreman defended the Heavyweight Championship of the World for the third time against former Champion, Muhammad Ali.
Ali at 32, had been given little chance against the fearsome puncher who had knocked out both Frazier and Norton, whom both had beaten Ali in the past, in 2 rounds. The fight took place in Kinshasa, Zaire (Democratic Republic of Congo), and was put together by promotor Don King. This is considered by many as the most significant fight of Muhammed Ali’s career. The fight was called Fight of the Year for 1974.
