Regular price $2,000.00
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 check from Muhammad Ali's training camp in Deer Lake, Pennsylvania used for training for this fight which he has boldly filled out and signed. Letter of Authenticity from JSA (James Spence).
