    Sonny liston vrs Elmer Rush(1967)

    April/28/1967 Stockholm Sweden KO 6.
    Anyone seen this fight on film?
    It was one of Liston's 4 bouts that he had in Sweden during 1966-1967.
    (promoted by Ingermar Johanson)
    The other three fights can be seen on "Liston's greatest hits" on ESPN classic
    (Gerhard Zech(selected rounds).Amos Johnson and Dave Bailey)
    Were these originally broadcast live on Swedish television?

    The fight was filmed, I have a VERY brief H/L.
    Soon after the Liston fights, professional boxing was banned in Sweden. Swedish laws prohibited pro boxing on television.

    Liston vrs Elmer Rush had been a co-feature of the Bo Hogberg vrs
    Bobby Cassidy light middleweight fight.
    Anyone seen all seven rounds of Liston vrs Gerhard Zech?

    Anyone know who the guy is being knocked to the ground
    about 49 minutes into the HBO video Sonny Liston Mysterious life and Death of a Champion?
    Its just after the clip of Liston pummeling Henry Clark.
    It looks like grainey old 16 mm footage.
    Someone mentioned on another forum,that they thought one of Liston's fights with Billy Joiner was filmed.Is that Billy Joiner?
