    Description

    Liston vs Clay (20th Century Fox, 1964). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Hardened criminal Sonny Liston was a big, powerful fighter who possessed a knock out punch with either hand. So dominating was Liston that many "experts" of the day felt he was unbeatable. Then came Cassius Clay, the brash loud-mouthed "Louisville Lip" who not only claimed he'd beat Liston, but also knock him out by the 8th round. Not many people gave the 7-1 underdog Clay a chance against the thunderous punches of the champ. Clay however, managed to dance around and avoid Liston's sledgehammer blows while landing lighting fast combinations. Liston, having been thoroughly whipped, quit after the 7th round and a new legend was born. This poster is for the theater-released replay of the fight. Near Mint.
