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

I've been studying hwt boxing history since 1970. Truth is the truth. Speculation and outright lies are something totally different. There is solid evidence that both fights were totally legit. Investigations were made and the conclusion of all of these is that there was no evidence of a fix. Now if you would rather believe speculation and unrelated events thrown together ignoring the facts so be it. Just remember....the right hand Ali hit Liston with was strong enough to lift his lead front foot, the foot he was stepping forward with, off from the canvas. Patterson, Torres, Fleischer, Walcott and many others felt Liston was koed. The observation of Chuvalo that Listons eyes were darting side to side while on the canvas also indicates Liston was severely hurt.
