Default Re: Sonny Liston - Had To Lose In Lewiston, Maine

Fight was investigated by the NY state boxing commission in the months after. Ali, Liston, Walcott and all parties involved were called in and interviewed. The official report found NO EVIDENCE OF A FIX. Years after a technical analysis was completed examining the fight film frame by frame......conclusion was that the KO was legit...Ali caught Liston as he was stepping forward with a punch he did not see coming. Major evidence and this was also seen by the Sports Illustrated writer I quoted previously was that Listons lead foot, the foot he was stepping forward onto was lifted off the canvas by the force of the blow. Now unless you have an OFFICIAL investigation that shows the fight was fixed to counter the OFFICIAL investigation that was completed that showed NO FIX the debate is OVER.
