Liston's neck was almost 30". His reach was 84 15/16" exactly. He was only 29 when he died though! Who gives a shit!!! You guys are gonna be guessing who had the longest **** one of these days, I almost guarantee it. lol

Sonny Liston did have 'big feet'.

You know what they say, 'big feet' = 'an enormous schwanzstucker'

Obviously you don't get the code which is being spoken here. This is all about length, girth and chin slappin' balls.

I've look at all those threads. Nothing has yet been proven about his age. No one has found Charles Liston on the census.
He gave conflicting accounts of his age.

It's hardly 'myth-writing'. It's simply a reliable lack of data on his date of birth.

It doesn't.
It doesn't matter how long his wing-span was either.

exactly, it's all redundant. he did what he did and he's done what he's done. whether he was 30 or 32 and his reach was 80 or 84 it won't change anything.

Nothing has been mentioned about Sonny Liston's arrest record.

Nobody can touch his record.

He had more 'arrests' than 'knockouts'.

Actually, I have never seen film of him.

But by using a complex matrix of algorithms that I created, I place him at #4 all time. Wingspan is a major component, as well as arrest record, age and number of siblings.

The Las Vegas coroner's report after Sonny's death in December 1970,
listed the dental examination as a man in in his 40's.

According to that stats sheet Ali only had 15 inch biceps and his waist was an inch thicker than Sonny's. I would have thought a 22 year old Ali would have a trimmer waist than Liston. Ali is also listed at 6.2 and a half inches when i though he was always listed at 6.3.
