CASSIUS CLAY VRS SONNY LISTON

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY          2012

On November 16th, 1964, Valley boxing enthusiasts were able to experience some of the excitement of the live heavyweight championship fight between the champion Cassius Clay and the challenger Sonny Liston. The Valley Music Theatre in Woodland Hills enabled pre-pay for view television audiences the opportunity to see world class events broadcast across America.

The day after his victory over Liston, Cassius Clay changed his name to Cassius X. A week later he became the sports immortal Mohammed Ali.
