Ali: Rumble in the Jungle

In 1974, Muhammad Ali fought champion George Foreman in Kinshasa, then the capital of Zaire, in the now famous Rumble in the Jungle. It was scheduled to be Ali's last fight.

On the eve of the contest, Ali spoke to the BBC's then-boxing commentator Harry Carpenter.

In a piece of true Muhammad Ali theatre, he explained how, despite being the underdog at 32, he had no doubts about who would come out on top.
