This is like a real life Boxing Circus.


Quote:
Foreman, still sore from losing to Ali, gets inspired by the late singer Marvin Gaye when he told George "You're still the baddest man on the planet, you should fight five top contenders, or were contenders, all in the same night."

Foreman knocks out Boone Kirkman, Alonzo Johnson, Jerry Judge, Dino Dennis, and Charlie Polite in a combined 12 rounds....was a very, very impressive stunt, with Foreman saying afterwards "Ali didn't beat no George Foreman over in Zaire, he beat some banana picker!"

Unfortunately, the whole scenario didn't change the public's minds or most boxing writers minds, of what happened over in Africa, and Foreman would eventually lose to Jimmy Young in 1977, and would put himself into a self-imposed exile and wouldn't come back for another 10 years.

Still, indeed, it is a grand thing to watch; something that wasn't ever done since the time Bob Fitzsimmons fought eight times [seven men, fought one of them twice] in a single night, some hundred years before.
