George Foreman vs Muhammad Ali
George Foreman defends the Heavyweight Championship of the World for the third time against former Champion, Muhammad Ali. Ali at 32, had been given little change 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, Zaïre (todays Congo), and was put together by promotor Don King. This is considered by many as the most significent fight of Muhammad Alis career. The fight was called Fight of the Year for 1974.
Their records at the time
George Foreman: 40-0
Muhammad Ali: 44-2

One of the greatest performances in the history of the greatest heavyweight boxer ever, and he wasn't even close to the capabilities he sported in his prime. It's not just Muhammad Ali who was robbed of those three years of boxing; the entire world was robbed of what might have been. Go back and look at this fights between 64-67...he was almost untouchable. He could throw a jab literally faster than you can blink. Float like a butterfly; sting like a bee.

I can't agree. I don't think he could handle the guys that he fought in that age as younger ali. His chin was tougher when he was older and he still had great movement in his mid 20s. 22 year old ali I can't see beating Joe or Norton reliably.

@craenor You're absolutely right. Ali in his prime (Well, at least the next best thing to his prime which we never got to see) was a masterpiece of the sport.

Going undefeated in boxing is more of a statement about the quality of opposition in the era in which you fought and your fighting style than it is your overall greatness. I'm not saying Rocky Marciano didn't fight quality opponents and wasn't great. He was a Top 10 Heavyweight (probably Top 5), but he didn't fight opponents the calibre of Liston, Ali, Frazier, or Foreman in their prime. Marciano himself said that Ali was the fastest heavyweight he'd ever seen, and he further said that were they able to have fought when each was in their prime, Marciano wouldn't have altered his fighting style for Ali. And that really is the biggest difference. Ali had to reinvent aspects of his style at various times in his career, and he was able to do so with phenomenal success. But for my two cents, the Muhammad Ali who fought Cleveland Williams in Houston in 1966, was untouchable. A Marciano/Ali fight, when both were in their prime, might have gone the distance, but Ali would still have been dancing circles after 15 rounds, without a mark on his face.

People today have absolutely no idea how great George Forman was ,he obliterated every boxer he came up against and Ali was given no chance in this fight and there was calls for the fight to be binned for the sake of Ali’s health . This was his greatest triumph and cemented him as the greatest heavy weight boxer of all time .

Never a truer words spoken
@KING MEEZER Ali also had to be tough as a two dollar steak to WEATHER what George brought. Bottom line is he came out and BAM! Threw a straight right hand into George’s kisser-BAM!, he did it again, Nd BAM! In boxing throwing a right is DANGEROUS, leaving you exposed, without having sent a jab to even distract, size up, measure the distance. Essentially Ali TOLD the Bully he DID NOT RESPECT HIS POWER OR HIS PROWESS. Its an insult, basically, and just as he’d stood tall and told the Champ “You’ve been hearing about me since you were a child and now you are about to meet your Master”. But he had to weather the storm, and he did, and just drained his man. Greatest Sports and Personal Redemption story (his battle with The Man robbing him of his Prime, all of it). Peace

But the question was greatest sports performance in history. Shattering a mile and a half record by 2 seconds, a record which stands today, easily, gets my vote. Secretariat wasn't even the greatest American race horse. I'd give that honor to Man o' War. But Secretariat's Belmont performance is unrivalled, imo.

Well, Ali said he will drop Foreman in 8 and he did it. Foreman is still all praise for Ali saying that Ali could have punched him when he was falling but did not. Ali never hurt anyone more than he should and in several occasion signalled to referees to stop a fight so he does not have to keep beating anyone. Ali was a sportsman, not a slugger. We may not see another heavyweight like him for ages to come.

That’s crazy, he just let him punch himself out and took advantage of his weak moments when he got tired. Totally awesome game plan for somebody as big as George, especially since it was 80° with almost 100% humidity. God bless Mohammed Ali.

@guess who Absolutely. This video completely proves it. He was out-weighed by a lot, out-powered and stood little chance in a better situation. But, brawn can rarely win against brain, especially on the genius level. Which is what Muhammad Ali did. Took into account the heat and humidity, took into account that George could easily punch himself out, due to his physique be stronger than anything cardio. Between the two, he had him and his corner from the first Bell. It’s just a huge blessing that Mr. Ali didn’t have a glass jar and wasn’t easily knocked out or down. Because those shots were hard and a lesser fighter would’ve gone down with one of them. Truly amazing. This is a fight that should be shown on the rotation to let people know how mental ability is just as important as physical, when it comes to heavyweight boxing. Take advantage of any advantage you can have, outside of physical prowess. Bless you, buddy. Have a great weekend.

As a long time Ali fan I'll say it as I think it was: it seems that Zack Clayton only counted 'till 8, but I don't know if the time keeper has a word about this. Either way, for all those who still think this was a bad call, check Ali's right hand just as Foreman is falling. He could have landed the right hand once more and Foreman would have probably got a 100 count. Ali had mercy and Foreman himself recognized that.
Anon1441 11 dias atrás
Your all fools, George foreman has said himself in an interview that the stoppage was incorrect for two reasons. He said 1. That he was perfectly fine and whilst on the ground he could have got up straight away but he was looking at his corner as they had planned and you can see his head is up from the canvas looking in the direction of his corner as they are instructing him to take the all the time he can to rest so he was waiting on their call and they were counting as per referee and then they told him to get up in time and he did. and 2. the referree didnt count to 10 so it was an early stoppage

@Uncensored in the beginning of the match they explain the rules. According to those rules the counting continues even after the bell. That’s why it doesn’t matter if there were 8 sec left or 2 sec left. When the boxer falls, the counting will continue until 10 and if unsuccessful, the other fighter wins. People don’t pay attention to the rules therefore are commenting with 8 sec left.

Ali was really the best at anything he could set his mind to… He was one of the best at boxing, public speeches, trash talk, and hiding his nervousness… Later in his life, He said in an interview he was nervous and he didn’t think he could beat Foreman. I didn’t notice any negative emotion from Ali until after I heard him admit that he was indeed afraid. Now looking back at this, I can kinda tell just by his elevated alertness and how he was trying to finish Foreman in the beginning… Hopping around, scared to get hit, and hitting him as hard as he could.

The only fight in Ali's career that I would have bet the house that he had NO chance to win. I was wrong. Foreman (for you youngsters who don't remember) was the 70's version of Mike Tyson. NO ONE lasted more than a couple of rounds with the Monster, George Foreman. He was a terrifying man in the ring who had destroyed everyone that Ali had lost to. Besides the Tyson-Douglas and Clay-Liston fights, this was an upset of epic proportions. God Bless you Muhammad, you will be loved and missed.

This fight does remind me of a time when boxing was on top. Everyone knew who the heavyweight champ was. I like Tyson Fury, and as great of a personality as he is, the majority of people likely can't tell you who the heavyweight champ is. MMA killed boxing but watching fights like this reminds me of what we lost.

I agree with this statement for the most part. Sadly, I would also add that the fall of boxing was internal as well; corruption and awful promotions expanding numerous weight classes just created a convoluted field. I miss those days, I was in my teens in the 80s and saw some great fighters.

I was a Japanese senior high school student at that time, and none of my classmates including me believed Ali`s victory. Because of his victory, I learn that a miracle could happen, and he taught me that "Never give up, and continue making efforts to the last ditch." Later, George Foreman regained the Championship at the age of 45. Great George also did a miracle. Ali and Foreman are my greatest heroes.

@Brad rawsner Yes, it is, was incredible that Big George came back 20 years later and won the Heavyweight Boxing title at 45. The George Foreman that destroyed Frazier & Norton was not the same Boxer that fought against Ali. I believe that Foreman's trainer was paid off by the mafia to drug his water, that would cause George to be lethargic and exhausted & heavy-footed before the fight even started. The Ref, Zach Clayton wasn't penalyzing Ali for grabbing behind George's head & neck on a regular basis through-out the fight. The ref only counted to 8, when Foreman was on his feet and there was only 2 seconds left on the clock for the 8th round and the ref never evaluated George's condition. All of these outliers lead me to believe this fight was fixed just like Liston's fights against Clay/ Ali.

Foreman interview about Ali match "I was over-confident when I fought him. I’d gone through fighters who’d beaten him, such as Joe Frazier and Kenny Norton. All I thought was, “Should I be merciful or not?” I thought he was just one more knockout victim until, about the seventh round, I hit him hard to the jaw and he held me and whispered in my ear: “That all you got, George?” I realised that this ain’t what I thought it was."

@CHM Productions - Hmong Music , Hmong Songs I think history was pretty fair to Big George. His aura of invincibility was broken by the Ali fight. Same happened to Tyson after Douglas and jail. However, he eventually remade himself. He won the heavyweight championship again after 40, he became a great entrepreneur with the grill, he was beloved by many for his jolly personality and eccentricities like naming all his kids George lol. History has been great to Big George.

@Chris Morgan And that doesn't mean that foreman didn't fight stupidly. Ali still could've let foreman expend all his energy, but had foreman fought smarter, conserving his energy, Ali's plan would've failed, as Ali himself would've been tired by the last few rounds, just like he was dead tired by round 15 vs. Joe Frazier in Manila. Get back to me when you figure that out, soy boy.

@Brad rawsner That doesn't mean the fight was rigged, as you suggested. It does mean that it's observable that Ali used superior strategy to get Foreman to wear himself out. I think you educate yourself as to what the term "rigged" means and get back to us.

I was in the UK when this fight took place. I had grown up watching Ali, from when he first fought Henry Cooper ( as Clay then). He became my absolute hero, and revolutionised what a heavy weight boxer could be. When Ali fought Fireman I genuinely feared for him. Because of the time difference I woke in the morning fearfully listening to the news on the BBC expecting to hear that Ali had been destroyed. The sheer joy I felt when the result was broadcast, was mixed with amazement. I am now over 70, but this victory still stands out as the greatest sporting victory in my life.

I've seen this a million times before, and never noticed that moment at end, where they're trying to hoist him up and he tells them to cut it out. He knows that never ends well with big dudes.

only Big george had a 25 years career in heavy weight box.Simply incredible .Boxers have a prime of 6 7 years. It tells you a lot.Especially the ones who are saying that Ali was old,32, when he won against Foreman, if Ali won against Norton and Frazier Foreman destroyed them literally.Like Tyson he was a destroyer. Nobody ever destroyed Foreman even when he was 45. Ali ,who is a fantastic stylish and clever boxer won.There nothing to say,he fought better. Foreman overconfident committed many mistakes , and Ali a fast clever and agile cat took fully advantage of them. One single mistake is enough against Ali and generally speaking in heavy weight boxing. Foreman 42 learned how defence was important.And as an old man never landed on canvass,simply incredible. Ali was the victory of speed and technique ,Foreman a low technical boxer with heart and a natural explosive body. Not a body builder withouth an explosive punch like Holyfield Bruno and many others. There not much to say Ali was extraordinary.But foreman must own a place in the list of the greatest boxers ever. This was a fantastic match ,two fantastic boxers so different tactically and technically.

If the ref didn't let Ali hang on so much he'd probably got knocked out. Not to try and take anything away from Ali, he fought a smart fight. And although foreman was stronger and a harder puncher, they're both big men and Ali's punches are also very hard and do a lot of damage. Fast punches, and speed equals power. Tremendous fight.

Arguably the greatest performance of the century in all of sport. A past his prime Ali had no right to win this fight against a knockout machine. The great man cemented himself as the greatest that night.

Ali turtled because he knew he couldn't win straight up. Worked well, but the people praising him for his "genius" and how "incredible" he is for it are fanboy coping hard. Made for an extremely boring, drawn out, and overall lame match. Ali just ran away and dodged/blocked the whole time while running his mouth. Imagine if George Foreman did the same this match? Instead he decided to man up and bring the fight, as he should. Pretty unsportsmanlike of Ali tbh, guess karma eventually caught up with him after he ate thousands of punches

@ALLIN GOLD A slave will probably try harder, especially if they knew they were going to be killed if they didn't perform well, so you got a point I guess.

People are intentionally unable to disassociate Ali the man from Ali the boxer. I'm an ex boxer. Ali's footwork and speed where/are the best of any weight division He was the best ring tactician ever. For two decades, he took out everyone in the heavyweight division. Like or dislike Ali the man, Ali the boxer is the best to have ever set foot in the ring.

In his book HEALING, Ali admits that he was guilty of religious intolerance for decades and only came to believe otherwise later in his life. Co-written with Thomas Hauser, HEALING is a fantastic book that fans of Ali may appreciate.

If you like this commentator, check out George Foreman vs Ron Lyle, then check out Larry Holmes vs Ken Norton. Then Buster Douglas vs Mike Tyson, but make sure you watch the version where Bob Sheridan does the commentary, not anyone else. Also, Ali vs Chuck Wepner

@Babú Lah Ali is unreal in this fight , the way foreman hit him with solid full strength kidney punches , no man in the world could stand that . Ali is like an iron man , those punches didn't cause any damages , absolutely none !!! Unbelievable , just unbelievable . Foreman lost the fight even psychologically .

@Dr Joyraj Ghosh So did the ref warn Ali or take away points? The boxers must obey his commands at all times. In all competitive sports athletes adjust their tactics based on how the ref is officiating the contest. A foul is only a foul if the ref calls it.
