Shit Worth Checking Out: David King's photographs of Muhammad Ali in 1974 while training for The Rumble in the Jungle.

In 1974, Muhammad Ali trained for sixteen weeks in the Pennsylvania Mountains in preparation for the Rumble in the Jungle, his historic heavyweight title fight against George Foreman in Zaire.  These photographs were taken by David King during that training session and appeared in his 1975 photographic biography of Ali I Am King.  See more of his photos below the cut.  These are awesome in every way.
