Clay vs. Liston I, Convention Center, Miami Beach, February 25, 1964: Heavyweight Champion Sonny Liston was used to bullying opponents in the ring, but 22-year-old Ali, then known as Cassius Clay, was too quick for him. Ali dodged Liston, cut him, and got through two rounds when something on Liston’s gloves blinded him. Ali ultimately prevailed. “It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great as I am,” he later declared. This photograph appeared on the March 9, 1964 cover of Sports Illustrated.
