Re: 'Why I Took A Dive' by Sonny Liston
"Round 6" at The Convention Center in Miami Beach.
Sonny put in very little effort, and never even attempted a right hand.
He was allowing Cassius Clay to hit him, and was begging Clay to hit him with a
big right hand.
Cassius Clay himself, was winded. And by the 2:00 Mark, he was showing signs of
Sonny, suprisingly, still had his hands held up high.
Though Cassius Clay won the round, he only landed one good hard punch in the round,
a right hand at the 0:39 Mark.
On the scope, it sure didn't look like a round where a Champion would quit afterwords.
