We wanted to take a moment to wish a late-evening happy 73rd birthday to Muhammed Ali, one of the greatest athletes of all-time. A part-time Berrien Springs resident, we wished to honor Ali with one of our favorite moments from his illustrious career (and one of our favorite sports moments, period).
Ali’s unlikely knockout of the young, spry, monstrously scary George Foreman in 1974’s Rumble in the Jungle (held in Kinshasa, Zaire – now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) still gives us goosebumps.
If you haven’t, please do yourselves a favor and check out Leon Gast’s When We Were Kings, one of the greatest sports movies of all-time. Fitting for the G.O.A.T.
