Sonny died naturally of old age. He was nearly 76 when he fought Williams, for crying out loud. How long do you expect a brother to live?!

Exactly! That works out to about 86. We have to put this into context, mate.

He was 83 years old when he threw the fight to Clay. Then the Martians came for him. He completed his work here.

No. Liston had long been resigned to the fact that the mob owned him. They got him off a few charges when he was young and was forever in their debt from then on. Like a lot of people his life was always going to end that way.

I think your confusing Liston Williams with Louis Marciano.
