Description

Game Changers: Stories of remarkable individuals and their impact on our world.

More than just a boxer, Muhammad Ali was one of the 20th century's most significant cultural figures, and in 1974 the "Rumble in the Jungle" was his stage as he set to face the favoured George Foreman. On the heels of the collapse of Richard Nixon's presidency and with the Vietnam War—which Ali had publicly and provocatively denounced and dodged—still ongoing, it was a moment in history where the world needed a hero. With the odds stacked against him as he set to face the red hot Foreman, Ali would use a strategy that captured imaginations around the globe in this unforgettable showdown.
