50th Anniversary: Cassius Clay vs Sonny Liston [Full Fight]

Today marks the 50 years since a young boxer named Cassius Clay shockingly defeated Sonny Liston by TKO in the 7th round on February 25, where he won The Ring, WBA & WBC World Heavyweight titles.

On that day in Miami Beach, Florida the legend of Muhammed Ali was born.

“Liston even smells like a bear. I’m gonna give him to the local zoo after I whip him.”

“You ain’t got no chance! You whupped!

These were quotes that stood true for the then 19-0 boxer before the fight.
