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


The LA Times boxing reporter A. Kram, was reporting that Liston was getting tagged
over and over by Amos Lincoln.
Then it was reported that Amos Lincoln was paid extra money, to stay as a
stationary sparring partner for the last few sessions, to make Liston look good.

The Boston Globe had an article, stating 'slow flows the Maine syrup, and its name is Sonny Liston'.

Terry Downes, the British Middleweight Champ, reporting for a U.K. newspaper,
said 'Liston moved like a Freight Train pullling out of a rail-yard'.

After the fight, Terry Downes said of the Phantom Punch, 'I've hit my daughter harder'
