Muhammad Ali Getting SHOT AT by Sonny Liston: GIF Spotlight

Roger E. Mosley, as Sonny Liston, with Muhammad Ali, in 1977's The Greatest. The film is a dramitization of Muhammad Ali's life, starring Muhammad Ali. You can't go wrong! This part of the film was devoted to Ali's real media ploy to hound Liston into a fight and psych him out. Liston's blank-firing was what we call "the growling of the bear" in our circle. He did not win the war, but Liston won one psychiatric battle, that day.
