Naomi's a boxing fan!

Calm down ...I'm not a fan, I just happened to remember this fight.

Darn, Naomi's not a boxing fan after all!

Sorry to disappoint you Lava, I know you had high hopes for me, but I just happen to have a good memory.

This was the first time the world heavyweight championship ever changed hands via a first-round knockout.

Looks like Floyd took a dive to me...

Patterson's chin was always suspect. (See the first two fights with Ingemar Johansson.) Liston's reputation as a big puncher probably didn't do much for Floyd's confidence.
