  • Description

    World Heavyweight Boxing Champion George Foreman is in training for his title clash next month with former Champion Muhammad Ali.

    The two meet in Kinshasa, Zaire, on 24 September.

    Foreman took the title from Joe Frazier in a contest that only lasted two rounds in January 1973.

    Ali, who had lost his championship to Frazier, won the right to Challenge Foreman with his wins over three other leading contenders.

    Foreman is proving the equal of Ali in the publicity that has surrounded his reign as champion. The start of training for the title clash brought him more attention.

    He opened the training camp at Pleasanton, California, with a picnic to which he invited newsmen and their families.
