1974 Muhammad Ali v George Foreman on-site ticket
A rare on-site ticket from the legendary "Rumble in the Jungle". Muhammad Ali met Heavyweight Champion George Foreman in Kinshasa, Zaire on 30th October 1974. The fight was originally planned for September 25th but was rescheduled after Foreman suffered a cut in training. Ali shocked the world, knocking out the heavily favoured Foreman in the 8th round. The right stub has been removed. The size is approximately 3" x 4.5". The ticket entitled the holder to sit in Seat 659, Section S. You can easily pick up one of the full proof tickets for this fight, but genuine on-site examples with seat numbers remain a tough find. The ticket survives in G-VG condition, with two or three heavy crease lines from where the owner stuffed it in his pocket at the fight - this has caused slight crinkling. The back has the original sticker with an image of President Mobutu affixed to it.
