Name: ALI, MUHAMMAD-GEORGE FOREMAN ON SITE POSTER (1974-LARGE VERSION)
History: Muhammad Ali fought George Foreman on October 30, 1974 in Kinshasa, Zaire. Given little chance, Ali knocked Foreman out in the 8th round to win the World Heavyweight Title for the second time. Ali employed a "rope-adope" strategy of covering up on the ropes and letting Foreman hit him until he tired. The strategy worked as an exhausted Foreman could not rise after being hit in the 8th round. Offered here is an original, large version, on site poster for this event.
Full description: This is an original, paper, on site poster which pictures both fighters and President Mobutu of Zaire. Professionally linen backed. Bold color and print. Bold, clear images. Not creased or torn. A trip of green tape just to the left of Ali's head reads "30 Octobre 1974," an alteration made necessary after Foreman was injured in training, requiring a postponement. Clean. 48" x 72." The finest example of this poster we have offered thus far.
