Ali defeated Foreman with an 8th round TKO to become the second heavyweight (Floyd Patterson) to win the crown for a second time.
Gumbo is a popular food dish that was created in Louisiana, and is a very popular item on restaurant menus in New Orleans. Gumbo is a dish that can be found in Baltimore-area restaurants as well.
Benzo is a hip-hop slang term for the Mercedes Benz automobile.
Muhammad Ali visited with the Ravens during the regular-season when he came to Baltimore. He has created a friendship with the team and coach John Harbaugh.
Ali defeated Leon Spinks by a 15-round unanimous decision on September 15, 1978 to become the first heavyweight to become a 3-time champion. The fight was held at the Superdome in New Orleans. Ray Lewis was 2-years and 4-months old when Ali defeated Spinks.
Who will be celebrating with champagne and eating gumbo, when the Ravens and Niners get it on in "The Rumbo at the Benzo".
