Trivia:

1964 Ring Magazine Fight of the Year.

No longer wanting to use his "slave name", after the fight Cassius Clay changed his name to Cassius X, and then to Muhammad Ali.

Liston suffered an injured shoulder from his previous fight, which is reason given for him retiring from the fight.

While still seated at his corner, Liston retired on the bell of the 7th round.
