About this Item

First Edition. Signed by the author, Paul Gallender. Illustrated. As new in dust jacket. An intimate biography of World Heavyweight Champion boxer, Sonny Liston, offering a meticulous examination of ListonÕs two bouts with Muhammad Ali and how events and circumstances outside the ring played a role in their outcomes. ListonÕs first match with Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) was on February 25, 1964 in Miami, Florida, with odds of 7-1 in ListonÕs favor. Liston lost that fight which led to considerable controversy as to whether or not he had thrown the fight. They met in the ring for a rematch on May 25, 1965 in Lewistown, Maine and Liston lost, accompanied again by controversy. From the bookÕs jacket flap: ÒWhen Sonny was forced to lie down against Ali in that fight, his reputation, legacy and ultimately his future, went down with him. A largely white sporting press despised and feared Liston and was only too happy to demean and forget him after the Al bouts. Because of the mediaÕs unrelenting negative attacks, most of what the world knows about Sonny has no basis in fact.Ó A fascinating portrait of a man and the times in which he lived.
