Summary
In 1974, Muhammad Ali made what some critics thought would be his last title bid to regain the heavyweight boxing championship, stripped from him years before. Fight promoters offered him five million dollars to come to the African nation of Zaire to face a seemingly unbeatable opponent whose youth and ferocity left Ali a long shot. Then, as the world watched, Ali took center ring, pulling off a stunning upset in what many call the fight of the century -- "The Rumble in the Jungle." Includes an interview with director Leon Gast, on the making of the film
