Synopsis
On September 25, 1974, in the wake of one of the greatest political scandals in its history, Watergate, America was poised to watch a knockout punch that would redefine it as a nation of champions. In the atmosphere of a three-ring circus, in a little known country ruled by a military dictator, on the little noticed continent of Africa, two American fighters held the world's attention. One would capture the world's imagination. But, four days before the scheduled "Rumble in the Jungle," as the heavyweight championship match up between reigning title holder George Foreman and challenger Muhammad Ali was called, the promoters announced that there would be a six week delay. And in that time span, as the international media took in the rhythms of the music and the mysterious beauty of the land, and as anticipation for the fight mounted an entirely new phenomenon evolved: black Americans saw their own generational crossroads reflected in the contrasting images Foreman and Ali.
