Default Re: Ali - Liston II "Pre-Fight Info'


Sonny Liston was prepping in Denver in March and April 65'.
He stayed in Denver thru Easter 4/18/65.
Sparring partners out there were;

Amos 'Big Train' Lincoln, age 30, 6' 3" 205 lbs. 30-5-1 (19 KO's)
Portland, Oregon

Don 'Toro Smith' Smith, age 27, 6' 3" 240 lbs. 6-4-1 (6 KO's)
Pittsburg, Pennsylvania

Chauncy Hudson (170 lb. amateur)
Denver, Colorado

Whoever was his main manager, no one knows, because no one visited him.
Archie Pirolli was his camp manager.

Then he left for Dedham, Massachussetts after Easter, 4/18/65.

For a guy that was going to take a pre-set 'dive', he sure didn't show it.
He was up running, at 5:30 AM, every morning.
