Default Re: Sonny Listons height and reach

Sonny Liston Facts;

Height; 6' 1/2"

An exact measurement of Sonny took place just before his bout with Leotis Martin, at a
Las Vegas 'press confernce', and on local television. Sonny was under 6' 1".

In Eastern Arkansas, where Charles Liston grew up. A local resident (Patricia Wise) who
knew Charles from her childhood days in Sand Slough (St. Francis County), said Charles Liston was
about 5 years old when she knew him 1932.

In the movie 'Moonfire', (released in 1970) you can see Sonny in full view walking around
with 'super long arms'. He was 'freakish looking' with those long sticks.
