I’ll say this my grandfather was in the mafia. He was putting money down on this fight when Mob boss John riggi told my grandpa not to bet on this fight. John riggi said that sunny Liston was throwing the fight. John riggi was the boss of the decavalcanti crime family and he had close working relationship with the 5 families in New York

You can literally see his head reverberate from ali's punch in the video so it did connect but if it actually knocked him out idk
cjr1881 Kun oldin
Uh.... you can see his head bobble. He definitely got hit. That is for sure. Could have been enough to rattle his brain and concuss him.
SeptixSkeptix Kun oldin
I don't think it was a dive. I have some boxing experience but mostly trained in BJJ and Muay Thai and fought several matches at amateur level. Those are the types of unexpected shots that do put people down, even in sparring. He was countered after telegraphing a shot and Ali was an excellent counter-striker while moving backwards, which is insanely harder to pull off than it looks mind you. Telegraphing shots is a big no-no because of this exact reason. It leaves you vulnerable to counters. The fact that he was moving in adds an exponential amount of force to the blow as well. The punches that you can't see coming are the most devastating ones. Case closed.

Were there any known injuries or underlying conditions Liston had that might have contributed? Like a one in a million punch got it just right to cause Liston serious pain and hit the ground? If not, I admit the footage looks a little sketchy.

They’ve overlooked Liston’s ties to the mafia, it’s widely known that he worked for the mob and after boxing became essentially paid muscle for them and subsequently killed him, I think the mobsters son who killed Liston has even spoken about it

As someone who's been in amateur fights (MMA) and been training in martial arts for a long time..the hit may not look impressive. But you can see the shockwave of the punch shoot his head back and liston was walking in to it. That makes any punch ALOT stronger. It's like if you run in to a wall, you're breaking ur face. Where as if the wall is move away from you at a slower pace than you're running, the impact wont be nearly as bad.

do the doctor x murders I live right next to where the hospital was its about this doctor who went beserk and killed over 20 patients when they were getting better from their illnesses and he killed some of them with the stuff you use to put dogs and cats down when their too sick and after it was knocked down, they built a old persons home over where it was which I think is creepy

Muhammed Ali was totally in on it. He was as shady as Sonny. The Nation of Islam was and still was a FBI/CIA construct. So you could say Muhammed was just playing a role.

*5 minutes in* Maybe, just maybe The dude that got knocked out by a the punch "that couldn't crush a grape" wasn't at all hard but he was tired and accepted his fate as the loser of the match. He just didn't want to get beaten badly so he just faked it without the winners knowledge nor the press or anyone.

I dont fully get it. There definitely was a punch! And it landed!! You can see Liston's ear shake and everything. Further Liston was in a forward movement therefore adding to the impact of a rather weak hit. Ive watched a lot of boxing and MMA and ive seen guys go K.O from less then that.. Given, it wasn't quite the epic knock out one would expect and it doesnt proof if the fight was rigged or not but the punch 100% hit the left side of Liston's head. May I remind you on the McGregor vs. Aldo fight? Aldo was caught off guard mid forward movement in an instabil fighting stance and went straight k.o. ...things like that happen all the time.

I reckon it clearly connected.. but idk I know that a punch doesn't have to have a lot of force behind to really put someone down but still... Listons reaction seemed a bit much
