You can yell conspiracy all you want but conspiracies are for the uneducated. Fight was investigated both formally and technically and the conclusions were as described.
I don't believe you.
How can a fix be detected by breaking the film down frame by frame? It can't be.

The main thing that proves you don't know what you're saying is this:

Liston was koed by a punch he never saw coming as he was stepping forward
How do you know whether he saw it coming or not? You don't.

Liston wasn't KO'd. To be KO'd a man has to be down for a count of 10. There was no count. At most, he was knocked down. Walcott stopped the fight in error.

I doubt if you've seen the fight from what you write. Go watch it. You can find it on YouTube.
