Name: ALI, MUHAMMAD-GEORGE FOREMAN ON SITE POSTER (1974-FROM SLAVESHIP TO CHAMPIONSHIP-SIGNED BY ALI-JSA)

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 the original on site poster designed for this fight, entitled From Slaveship To Championship, which has been signed by Muhammad Ali. This poster was eventually replaced as the on site poster because of the controversy caused by picturing Africans in chains.
