The Birth of A Great!

The Birth of A Great!

Happy birthday Sonny Liston. Usually out shone by Muhammed Ali, we take a look at the tragic biography, of a great fighter. Liston made his title defense against Muhammad Ali—at the time Cassius Clay—on February 25, 1964, in Miami Beach, Florida. Liston was a 7–1 betting favourite. In a pre-fight poll, 43 of 46 sportswriters picked Sonny Liston to win by knockout. Some were surprised during the referee’s instructions to see that Ali was a couple of inches taller than Liston, the so-called “Big Bear.”
