39 Years ago today... Ali vs Foreman - The Rumble in the Jungle (Full fight)

39 Years ago today ... The Rumble in the Jungle ... Undefeated World Heavyweight Champion George Foreman (25 yrs old, 40-0, 37 KOs) vs Muhammad Ali (32 yrs old, 44-2, 31 KOs)

Foreman, younger, was the heavy favorite. Ali, the underdog, at 32 years of age, lost a step and reflexes too, no longer floating like a bee. Both Joe Frazier and Ken Norton fought Ali four times in very tough bouts in which he won 2 of them, were both demolished by Foreman in 2nd round KO's. The stage was set for what has been called "arguably the greatest sporting event of the 20th century".

Without further ado, here is the full fight. If you have never seen this fight before, prepare yourself. If you have watched this fight before, relive the the Rumble in the Jungle!
