Muhammad Ali Knocks Out Sonny Liston, Lewiston, Maine, 1965 [VIDEO]
Muhammad Ali passed away Friday with his family by his side. He was 74.
Remember the "phantom punch" that knocked out Sonny Liston? That happened right here in Maine, 1965. Let's go to the tape... Ali vs Liston II:
The fight only went one round with a KO. It's the only heavy weight title fight in Maine and was one of the shortest heavy weight matches in history. It's the Champ's first fight as Muhammad Ali.
The bout was set in Lewiston after Boston pulled out of holding the contest - some say for Mob related reasons.
