I'm not taking nothing away from the GOAT ali. But this fight with Liston is fixed.
Why? 11 kun oldin
For those who think that Ali's knock out blow against Liston was weak, The punch Ali used in the video was what Ali called the "anchor punch" and this punch was so deceptively powerful because it was a counter to when people tried to jab at Ali's right side which made them extremely overextended and vulnerable, because of this overextension it allowed Ali to get a downward angle on his punch which made it far more powerful than it looks. This is compounded by the fact that Ali's "anchor punch" almost always landed squarely on the temple which is by far one of the best places to hit someone to knock them out. This doesn't even mention how in Liston's case he was so far overextended that his forward momentum also contributed to how hard the punch ended up being.
Kevin Smith
Kevin Smith 9 kun oldin
Why? The opponent also doesn't see it coming because his own extended jab obscures his view. Because of this he's unprepared for the impact of the punch.

Why don't u guys do your research before posting these type of videos ?!? Liston was not born in 1932, he was a lot older than stated. He was in his late 30's-early 40's when he fought Ali.

You skeptics need to watch more of Ali's fights. He has knocked out several of his opponents while dancing backwards and landing a quick right.You can easily see Liston's head take a wobble. Phantom punches don't connect.

BuzzFeed you're cancer. I meant to click that I wasn't interested in this video. Fight wasn't fixed. FBI says no proof it was fixed, Ref says he saw the punch, Doctors say the punch happened and liston's head movements prove it was devastating. Delete this channel.

So you should just trust the FBI?, Not disagreeing as the punch clearly landed but don't even cite the governments 2 cents in any matter

Clean connection. Liston was cracked with a perfectly time and placed punches that he didn’t see coming. You see Liston’s neck move from the impact. There was no fix. Ali landed a good shot. The camera angle made it difficult to see live. But anybody that knows what they’re watching understands what happened here.

Mohammed Ali most certainly did have enough power to send someone to the canvas. Now, did he use that power often? No, it was more sloppy, he preferd to wear down his opponent's rather than go in for the kill, as we saw when he fought Joe Frazier.

Amrel Archer
Amrel Archer 28 kun oldin
To people who says it is fixed: In boxing a counterpunch doesn't need much power. Accuracy matters just as much. Liston was swinging hence his weight and momentum was shifting forward, Ali just need to hit him enough to use Liston's momentum against hinself. If the punch connected to his temple or his chin, his brain would've shook his brain regardless of how strong a chin someone has. Sugar Ray Leonard was a similar fighter who lack power but makes it up with his technique and accuracy. Just because a fighter lack power it doesn't mean he can't score a knockout.

Ali being connected to the NOI is interesting as they have well known connections to Freemasonry and their is a possibility that the Freemasons wanted to push the mob out of boxing, like they did with Vegas, local lotteries and with the assistance of the FBI (Hoover was a gay Mason who the mob had dirt on but eventually had to go after and did) they seem to have accomplished their goals. Which makes you wonder who the real gangsters are... Crime is not better without the Mob, it is worse. They were bad, but the mobs that moved in are worse. Even in Italy Cammora, Ndranghetta, are the power, not the "Mafia."

I'm not saying it isn't fixed but Liston was moving into the punch and it was a lightning fast over-the-jab counter. Combined, that could very easily drop someone as they usually don't see counters coming.

Did anyone here see the punch from Seth Petruzelli that KOed Kimbo slice? it was a short right that looked weak, but down goes Slice, Same here with Ali- Liston it was a short corkscrew right, yeah it was enough to ko Liston. same as the Kimbo KO was the LIston KO.

He landed that right cross on liston's temple knocking his equilibrium. A punch there well disorient a person, and ultimately knock them out or put them in a daze. Most of those people calling it a fixed fight probably never stepped foot inside a ring

Watching someone who has clearly never thrown a punch or had one thrown at him call Liston’s jab “terrible” and Ali’s counter a “weak punch” is pretty hilarious. Maybe the two least athletic guys in the world should show just a tiny bit of respect for two legends of boxing.
Karl Kleve
Karl Kleve Oy oldin
Ali clearly fades back to slip Liston’s jab, and throws a cross over the top of the jab. A perfectly placed cross, thrown by a true heavyweight, on the jaw of a man moving forward can easily knock them out. The punch clearly lands and moves Liston’s jaw when it impacts.
