On October 30, 1974 possibly the biggest fight in combat sports history took place in Kinshasa, Zaire (It is now called Democratic Republic of the Congo). Muhammad Ali took on George Foreman for The Ring, WBC & WBA Heavyweight titles.
Ali came in the underdog for this fight. Ali was still seen as an amazing boxer, but did not seem like he had possessed the sting and charisma that he once had before he was suspended for 3 1/2 years for refusal to comply with the United States draft. Foreman however was crushing his opponents much like a young Mike Tyson
