Remembering Yesteryear: “Rumble in the Jungle” – On October 30, 1974, 32-year-old Muhammad Ali becomes the heavyweight champion of the world for the second time

The Rumble in the Jungle 1974

On October 30, 1974, 32-year-old Muhammad Ali becomes the heavyweight champion of the world for the second time when he knocks out 25-year-old champ George Foreman in the eighth round of the “Rumble in the Jungle,” a match in Kinshasa, Zaire. Seven years before, Ali had lost his title when the government accused him of draft-dodging and the boxing commission took away his license. His victory in Zaire made him only the second dethroned champ in history to regain his belt.
