1964

Steve Bunce talks us through what must be the biggest year in the biggest decade in heavyweight championship history: 1964. Casius Clay is unbeaten in 19 fights, but at the tender age of 22 even the bookies agree he is the underdog going into his fight with Sonny Liston. The Beatle's John Lennon chooses to back Liston (despite being rudely booted out of his gym earlier in the day), telling reporters Clay will not even last a round. Find out what happened in the match – and the year – that changed boxing history.
