Rumble in the Jungle $2K GTD

Celebrate the 45th anniversary of the most iconic sport event in history with a week full of bounty tournaments and a $2,000 GTD final!

On October 30 1974 the undefeated heavyweight champion of the world met the most famous boxer of all time in Kinshasa, the capital of Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo). The watching crowd of 60,000 included celebrities, literary figures, and Zaire's despotic ruler Mobutu Sese Seko. The fight between George Foreman and superstar challenger Muhammad Ali was dubbed the 'Rumble in the Jungle' by its flamboyant organiser Don King and is now considered to be one off the greatest sporting events of all time.

Foreman was the overwhelming favourite, a ferocious hitter and built like a tank. The champion had won his previous eight fights inside the first two rounds. Aware that beating Foreman would require something different, Ali deployed a dangerous and incredibly brave strategy dubbed "rope-a-dope", retreating to the ropes and allowing Foreman to unleash blows at will, with Ali dodging the worst but taking many to his body and arms.

Despite the onslaught Ali survived, while Foreman began to tire. He was conditioned to finish his opponents quickly, not pursue it for an hour. Ali came out punching in the eighth and Foreman had no answer. With seconds remaining in the round the challenger floored the champion, the fight was stopped and the 60,000 crowd erupted.

Let's celebrate this epic fight with a week full of bounty tournaments that lead to our $2,000 guaranteed final - knock out your opponents and grab their bounty and your share of the prize money!
