When We Were Kings is a 1996 documentary film directed by Leon Gast about the famous Rumble in the Jungle heavyweight championship match between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman held in (what was then called) Zaire (now called the DR Congo; all references are to Zaire) on October 30, 1974. It highlights Muhammad Ali's trademark wit and charisma, as well as his superb ring generalship during the fight itself.
