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.
