    Description

    Liston vs Patterson (Allied Artists, 1963). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Ex-con Sonny Liston was an extremely hard-hitting heavyweight who could knock out a fighter with either hand. After he left prison, Liston turned pro in 1953 and rapidly ascended the heavyweight ranks, leaving a stream of knockout victims in his wake. Liston became the heavyweight champion of the world on September 25, 1962, by annihilating reigning champ Floyd Patterson in one round. Patterson would suffer the same fate in a rematch 10 months later. This poster is from the theater-released replay of their second fight. Very Fine+.
