1. Muhammad Ali KO8 George Foreman, Oct. 30, 1974 – The bout was known as "The Rumble in the Jungle," and was held in Kinshasa, Zaire, now known as The Congo. Ali was seen as on the downside of his career and many were worried he'd be seriously injured. It was in this fight that Ali pulled out the "Rope-a-Dope" strategy. He leaned back against the ropes, covering up and allowing Foreman to punish him. Once Foreman tired, Ali opened up and knocked Foreman out in the eighth to win the title a second time.
