summary Sonny Liston - The Real Story Behind the Ali-Liston Fights review Sonny Liston - The Real Story Behind the Ali-Liston Fights Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Paul Gallender Ü 3 free read Sonny Liston The former heavyweight champ's name conjures up memories of invincibility power and awe but than anything else it suggests mystery Who was this intimidating man and what really caused his precipitous fall from the pinnacle of the sports worldPaul Gallender's revealing biography Sonny Liston The Real Story Behind the Ali Liston Fights sheds new light on Liston's tragic life and extraordinary career In meticulous detail the author shows why the outcomes of Sonny's two bouts with Muhammad Ali had far t. Sonny Liston was the biggest and baddest Heavyweight fighter of them all He had a jackhammer jab a left hook that had KO written all over it and he was generally impervious to opponent s punches He dominated the heavyweights from 1956 1964 up until Clay Yet because of his lurid prison past the sportswriters disliked him and he never got his due as a truly great heavyweight champion Well author Paul Gallender tries to right this wrong with his excellent book on Liston He argues that Liston was not the thug that most writers made him out to be He makes a fair case of showing the softer side of Liston but from my perspective the evidence is pretty thin that Liston was anybody s boy scoutWhenever the name Liston comes up in boxing talk fans want to know the answers to these three uestions 1 Did Liston uit due to a legit injury in the first Clay fight or was he told to uit 2 Why did Liston throw the second ClayAli fight 3 How did Liston really dieWhile the author adeuately and convincingly answers uestion 1 it is apparent that he sheds no definitive light on the next two uestions Yes he has theories but he offers no than any other book on these last two issues And for me this is the reason I purchased the book to learn about the dive with Ali and his mysterious death Gallender disappoints on these last two points Overall Gallender makes a fine case for considering Liston one of the greatest heavies ever and posits that only Ali could have beaten him After reading this book I tend to agreeI devoured this book in one day It is a very different look at Liston although I believe his favorable presentation of Liston is uite biased The author downplays Liston s assault on a St Louis policeman and his conviction for armed robbery as well as his numerous arrests Did the police harass Liston Yes indeed Was Liston treated unfairly by the press most likely Was Sonny Liston a saintBoxing fans will enjoy this uniue look at the Big Bear Charles Sonny Listonkone

summary Sonny Liston - The Real Story Behind the Ali-Liston Fights review Sonny Liston - The Real Story Behind the Ali-Liston Fights Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Paul Gallender Ü 3 free read Immense talent has been largely forgotten but it has never been eualed Half a century ago he was to boxing what Babe Ruth was to baseball and what Tiger Woods became to golf The legendary Joe Louis called Liston the greatest heavyweight champion in history Paul Gallender introduces you to a man who while not a saint had a sense of fairness and depth of character that was acknowledged for the most part only by family friends and children of every race Once you start reading this book you won't want to put it down. I feel this book will probably be overlooked and disregarded despite all the hard work that went into it which is sadly poetic in that it mirrors the life and career of Sonny Liston It is without exaggeration the best book on boxing i ve ever read and the epilogue honestly left me teary eyed Paul Gallender does an excellent job of setting a vivid scene or portraying Liston s state of mind at any given moment the years of research he put into this comes across beautifully Of course there are facts and details we ll never know but Gallender does his best to piece together the truth and present us with all possibilites This includes well reasoned speculation regarding Liston s dive in the second Ali fight and his mysterious death What i liked most about the book is that Liston isn t defined by the two Ali fights he was a man in his own right and this book treats him so I could write paragraph after paragraph about how delighted i am that i bought this book but i ll just leave you with two words buy it

He was an afterthought for me. After reading about his life and his two famous fights with Ali, I have a much better understanding of what a great boxer and man he really was. He was often involved with the law, usually because he was being hounded by police. He was a heavy drinker and much of his troubles were because he was drunk. He
