45 Years Ago: The Rumble in the Jungle

Posted on October 30, 2019 by Dean Hybl

While the greatest victory of Muhammad Ali’s career was perhaps over the U.S. Government, it could certainly be argued that he had no greater win in the boxing ring than his victory over George Foreman in the Rumble in the Jungle 45 years ago on October 30, 1974.

Though the 32-year old Ali had been a great champion, he had lost more than three years at the peak of his career due to his battle with the U.S. Government and in the three years since his return to the ring had never quite reached the level of greatest displayed earlier in his career.

He had posted a 15-2 record since returning to the ring and avenged both defeats, but the undefeated 25-year old Foreman was 40-0 in his career and wasn’t just winning fights, he was demolishing opponents.

Ali’s two defeats had been to Joe Frazier and Ken Norton. Foreman’s fights with both Frazier and Norton ended in the second round. He knocked Frazier down six times before their fight was finally stopped. Norton, who had famously broken Ali’s jaw in their first fight, was knocked out by Foreman in the second round.

There are many things about the Rumble in the Jungle that are now famously part of boxing lore.

One thing that made the fight notable was that it was being fought in Zaire, Africa. Ali had fought oversees several times previously, but never in Africa.

Posted on October 27, 2019 by Kevin King

When companies started making the first pitching machines, baseball teams were buying them like crazy. What a brilliant idea, a machine that can pitch the ball over and over again to any batter, for as long as they want. A pitcher can only throw the ball for so long before they tire, but with a machine, there was no limit.

As pitching machine technology became more advanced and started utilizing multiple spinning wheels, the possibility of football throwing machines was suddenly possible.

The idea was revolutionary and every football team wanted one. Football machines are now considered a standard piece of equipment for any football team.
