Description

Muhammad Ali met George Foreman in the ring. Foreman's genius employed silence, serenity and cunning. He had never been defeated. His hands were his instrument, and 'he kept them in his pockets the way a hunter lays his rifle back into its velvet case'. This book focuses on the 1975 World Heavyweight Boxing Championship in Kinshasa, Zaire.
