    Idk. That was the clip espn had up.

    I know it more from college dorm posters, never actually watched the fight til today.

    Seemed like a really weak punch to ko a heavyweight.

    Yeah, before my time...But I watched an entire doc about that one punch...It was real, they explained the physics of it and everything

    Supposedly up until the KO, Liston was an animal...feared guy, like Young Tyson....Plus he was owned by the mob. Which made people think it was fixed...If I remember correctly the story was that Liston died of an OD, rumored to have been set up by his mob owners...Such a sad sport back then...They chewed these guys up and spit them out
