Click to Enlarge

Before Sky got the idea of charging to watch big sporting events live, the Odeon Cinema chain was beaming the Rumble in the Jungle Live to a sreeen near you. This ad was published on 16th September 1974 in the London Evening News and shows the original date for the fight (24th September) but in fact it was posponed to the 30th October after Foreman cut his eye during training.
