ALI, MUHAMMAD WIRE PHOTO (1974-BEFORE FOREMAN FIGHT)
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 wire photo of Muhammad Ali walking in the ring before the fight in his beautiful robe. This is an original United Press International wire photo which is marked on the back. Bold, clear image. Clean front and back. Not creased or torn. Minor surface and edge wear. Incredible image. 8" x 10."
