Muhammad Ali

Written by: Andrea Dietrich

Boxing heavyweight king, Muhammad Ali,

was quick and strong, but also used psychology.

He'd let himself get pummeled, giving foes false hope -

like to George Foreman in Manila, his first "rope-a-dope."

*Rope a dope is a technique that Ali perfected when he 
beat George Foreman. By just taking a beating to his
stomach as he leaned back into the ropes of the boxing
ring and letting the ropes absorb the force of those
blows, he was able to tire Foreman out and then let
him have it!!!
