George Foreman no longer wonders why a devastating defeat at the hands of Muhammad Ali in the fabled Rumble in the Jungle of 1974 proved the catalyst for an enduring friendship.Foreman and Ali are forever linked by that clash in Kinshasa, where Ali knocked out the previously unbeaten Foreman in the eighth round to regain the crown he hadn't held since being banned from boxing in 1967 for refusing to fight in the Vietnam War.After pummeling Ali for three rounds, Foreman said, he was sure he was on his way to a knockout.By the sixth round, Foreman said, Ali was taunting him.
