Kinshasa is the third largest city on the African continent, capital of Africa’s third-largest country, the Democratic Republic of Congo (Congo-Kinshasa). It is a major commercial center on the continent, with its enormous natural resources creating an increasingly booming economy. Its population of more than nine million people inhabits a vibrant city of varying contrasts situated on the southern bank of the vast Congo River.For some, the city of Kinshasa represents one of the biggest sporting events in history, the "Rumble in the Jungle". It was October 30, 1974, when the former heavyweight champion, Muhammad Ali, was pitted against the current heavyweight champion George Foreman in an attempt to regain his title. The fight not only resulted in Ali's favor at the end of the eighth round.
