A Different Kind Of Rumble In The Jungle

Who else has vivid memories of that absolutely unforgettable boxing match between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman in Kinshasa, Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo) on October 30, 1974?

This fight was promoted as and even today it is simply known as “Rumble In The Jungle”.

Ali won in the 8th round by KO after fighting a very clever bout by wearing Foreman out or better letting Big George wear himself out.


But there is a different kind of “Rumble In The Jungle” that I want to introduce to you today.

Several years ago I was watching “The Rundown” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Christopher Walken and Seann William Scott.

There is one fight scene that takes place in the Brazilian jungle that always gets my attention, especially because one of the jungle fighters is played by Erne Reyes Jr. and he does an incredible job.

But I will let you be the judge:

 

Seann William Scott has a point when he refers to these fierce jungle fighters as “Speedy little bastards.”

Agree or disagree?
