I WAS THERE: George Chuvalo Watches Sonny Liston Take A “Dive”
submit to reddit

In this edition of I Was There, boxer George Chuvalo talks about the anger he felt when he watched from ringside as Sonny Liston went down in a fight against Muhammad Ali — a defeat that Chuvalo and many others thought was a dive. For Chuvalo, who recently released the book Chuvalo: A Fighter’s Life, the stakes couldn't have been higher: if Liston had won, Chuvalo would've gotten to face him for the title of WBC Heavyweight Champion.
