Regular price $1,500.00

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 decorative tapestry which portrays the fighters , boxing gloves and the fight date. These tapestries were used as displays in Zaire and were also worn by native dancers.
This is an original cloth tapestry which pictures both fighters, boxing gloves and fight date. Bold, clear images. Clean with vibrant color. No noticeable flaws. 24" x 36." Framed.
