    • In his first fight with Muhammed Ali, Sonny quit between rounds six and seven claiming an injured shoulder. Many Ali fans claim that there was no injury and Liston quit because he was losing badly and didn't want to be knocked out and embarassed. However, an X-ray proved Liston's shoulder was dislocated and two of the three fight judges had the fight dead even and the third had Sonny slightly ahead.
