“The scariest injection was given to me by Ali in 1974, there will be no problem with the coronavirus. Muhammad Ali threw a right hand at me that caught me. Since then I have been able to cope with all the injections, “said George Foreman, a former 72-year-old, as he received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine. Was referring to The rumble in the jungle, possibly the best fight in boxing history, held at the Tata Raphaël Stadium, in Kinsasa, now the Democratic Republic of the Congo and formerly Zaire. Big George was knocked out in the eighth round.
But and Foreman staged an epic battle. Ali, considered the greatest boxer of all time (which is why he was nicknamed The Greatest), hunted Foreman to regain the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association heavyweight titles. That fight left Foreman forever marked: “The defeat left me devastated. I had been a professional all those years, I was undefeated and no one had ever beaten me. And I thought he knew how to navigate through anything except a KO, a loss. I had nightmares. I woke up in the middle of the night and thought I was going to beat the count, but then I lost the fight.
