I was 14 and had to go to bed too, Nemo. Not only that, it wasn't on regular TV. We didn't have a TV anyway at that time. I did get up and keep running over to the radio, keeping the volume low, for the round by round recap. That's right, not a live round by round radiocast, a round by round recap.

Sorry folks, those were the Dark Old Days, Ancient Times, March 8, 1971.

Ed, you're one of the cutest guys I've ever seen, and in certain states of The Union I might even marry you ( :shock: ) but no, The Thrilla in Manila was Ali-Frazier III, held in late '75.

Ed

If you shaved his butt and taught him to walk backwards, would anyone notice the difference? :wink:

Ed, the Rumble In The Jungle was Ali-Foreman, held in mid to late '74.

Rumble in the jungle, Ali, Ali,
Rumble in the jungle, Ali, Ali,
Bomaye, bomaye,
Rumble in the jungle, Ali, Ali,
Rumble in the jungle, Ali, Ali,

Ahhhhhh, what a night in was in Kinshasa. If you watch the fight real closely, you notice that the rumors of the day about Ali's possible prowess with martial arts seemed quite evident. Notice the punching style he used to keep Foreman at bay, crisp, snapping, straight, kung fu style punching, while, true to Ali's word, Foreman's "Ol' Washerwoman" style of roundhousing everything tired him out until Ali sprang into action like a tiger early in Round 8 and as the big hit song goes:

"Put George Foreman to sleep for the night,"
Rumble in the jungle, Ali, Ali,
Rumble in the jungle, Ali, Ali,
Bomaye, bomaye, . . ."
