Re: Sonny Liston vs. Nino Valdes 'The Chicago Test'
Chicago Stadium (Attendance; 2282)
Both Sonny and Nino did not exhibit any special skills in the 1st-Round, as both
plodders appeared to be going through opening round motions.
The taller Valdez, was able to land a few snappy left hands into Sonny's face,
causing his right eye to swell. Sonny did not press, as he was wary of Nino's power
and good sharp left hand.
Late in the round, Nino attempted a left-right combination, and Sonny froze as the
punches bounced off his head. Sonny did clumsily press, but his attack were punches
of slow pushes, not snapping ones. Near the end of the Round, Nino shot in two good
left jabs, again catching Sonny's right eye.
Round 1 for Nino Valdez.
