We celebrate the ground breakers, the difference makers, and those whose struggle for greatness is the unending fight at the root of every human triumph. We celebrate the Culture of Greatness that reaches far beyond the field of play. At Roots of Fight we are proud to share the stories of these Icons who became revolutionaries. Each created and defined their own version of greatness. They transcended sport and art to shape popular culture on a global scale. Their contributions are still resonating decades later with new meaning, touching and inspiring people and change for generations. We exist to keep their spirit alive, passing the torch from generation to generation and evangelizing inspiration all over the world.

RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE

The events that unfolded in Kinshasa sent reverberations around the world. Everyone knew of Rumble. Everyone now knew of Zaire. The festivities leading up to the main event were unprecedented. The culture. The colours. The music - fronted by a headline performance from James Brown.

45 years later, people still speak of this event in almost mythical proportions. 

Rumble was more than a fight. What happened there spread far beyond the perimeter of the canvas. It was a fantasy matchup intertwined with a cultural event. The world’s imagination was peaked, and for a brief moment Kinshasa, Zaire was the centre of the Universe.
