It was 45 years ago today

One of the great sports photos of all time was taken on this date.

Heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali stands over fallen challenger Sonny Liston, shouting and gesturing shortly after dropping Liston with a short hard right to the jaw on May 25, 1965, in Lewiston, Maine.

  1. I must disagree with your assessment that this is One of the greatest photos of a sporting event ever taken. As a photographer since the 60s I believe this to be the Greatest photo of a sporting event ever taken. Don Gunn
