In Kinshasa, Zaïre, the 1974 "Rumble in the Jungle" pitted the aging superstar Muhammed Ali against the young, undefeated champion George Foreman. It would prove to be an all-time classic bout, but as Norman Mailer clarifies here, it also raised important issues about race, identity, and culture that are far from being resolved today.
