Despite their unending love and admiration for Muhammad Ali, many of his loyal fans the world over didn't think he had a realistic shot to beat George Foreman in the 1974 "Rumble in the Jungle" in Zaire. The oddsmakers showed even less faith in Ali, making him an 8-1 underdog. Foreman entered the fight on the heels of a stretch where he not only beat opponents, but abused them in the process, having battered and bruised Joe Frazier to capture the championship. Ali, though, was not be denied. He knocked out Foreman in the eighth round and regained the WBC Heavyweight Championship title that was so wrongly stripped from him nearly seven years earlier. When he wasn't waging a psychological assault on Foreman, Ali was in the gym training for the showdown. The Everlast boxing trunks seen here were worn by Ali during that training period. They are white satin with black trim at the sides and the waistband. Situated at the center waistband is the manufacturer's label, below which it reads "Made Expressly For Muhammad Ali". The trunks show excellent use and were given to Wali Muhammad, Ali's longtime cornerman, by Ali. They are accompanied by COA's from Muhammad and Craig Hamilton.
