The phantom punch


On this day fifty years ago. Ali vs Liston in Lewiston, Maine. (Photo by Neil Leifer) I just watched  the fight again – all one round of it — and still couldn’t figure out what happened. Richard Williams looks back on it all in The Guardian. All I’ll add is that Sonny Liston deserves to be remembered as much more than a famous loser. As you can see. (The airline ad with Andy Warhol is a gem.)
