Sonny Liston may have been the most-feared, least-understood heavyweight boxer in history, an ex-con and street thug who worked as a thumb-breaker for the mob, and whose boxing contract was owned by gangsters Frankie Carbo and Blinky Palermo of Murder Inc.

But author Paul Gallender, through 40 years of research, has uncovered a different side of Liston, a story he tells in his two biographies, "Sonny LIston: The Real Story Behind the Ali-Liston Fights," and the recently published "Sonny Liston: In a New Light."

Gallender joined us on The Ringside Boxing Show to paint a picture of a man with two very different personalities -- sullen, glowering, and frightening in the boxing world, and warm, generous, and affectionate when few were watching.

Our interview with Paul Gallender is preceded by expert analysts Travis Hartman and John J. Raspanti, who discuss Ward vs. Kovalev, Pacquiao's future, Froch's humiliating experience at the Joshua-Klitschko box office, the dark secret of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., and more.

 In a scintillating biography that took more than 30 years to research, author Paul Gallender pulls back the curtain on multiple truths, myths and rumors that surrounded the meteoric and troubled life of heavyweight legend Sonny Liston.

Gallender appeared on the Sept. 9, 2012 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show to discuss "Sonny Liston: The Real Story of the Ali-Liston fights," a book packed with things you never knew about the former heavyweight champion of the world, and the two infamous fights that destroyed him as a viable boxing commodity.
