Here are some things you likely do not know about the infamous Sonny Liston...........

“Favors aren’t special,” Liston once said. “You do them from the way you feel in your heart, and you don’t tell about them. You do a friend a favor; you don’t brag.” Sonny’s trainer, Willie Reddish, claimed Sonny never passed a beggar of any color on the street without giving him some money. “He didn’t do it for effect,” said Reddish. “He never knew I even noticed, but I did. I’d watch him out of the corner of my eye.”

Skinny Davidson said Sonny would give money to any disabled person he saw. “I saw him give seven and eight-year-old kids $20 back in 1959,” said his friend, Tommy Manning.
