Was The Fix In? Cassius Clay vs. Sonny Liston Miami 1964
It is one of the most iconic moments in boxing history when Cassius Clay, now know as Muhammad Ali, beat Sonny Liston. Liston refused to come out for the eighth round, giving Clay the victory.
But was the ‘fix’ in?
Documents released to The Washington Times under a Freedom of Information Act request revealed the FBI suspected the fight may have been fixed. There is no evidence that Ali was in on the scheme or even knew about it. And nothing suggests the bureau ever fully corroborated the suspicions it investigated.
Do you think it was or could have been fixed?
