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

Does anybody really believe that.

Oh, there was a punch that landed, and Sonny did go down. But that's
about it.

Jersey Joe Walcott thought that Sonny tripped.

And, UPI Photographer (Donald Robinson) who was right there at ringside
where the punch landed, heard absolutely 'no sound'.

And the 2434 fans in St. Dominic's Arena immediately cried 'Fake, Fake, Fake'.

I guess they were all fooled by the 'Anchor Punch'.


Question; If Sonny Liston won, just what would have happened next ?

Be careful how you answer, unless you know what you are talking about...
