Pariah: The Lives & Deaths of Sonny Liston


Pariah: The Lives & Deaths of Sonny Liston

Overcoming the seemingly insurmountable odds that life threw his way, Liston became the heavyweight champion of the world after destroying Floyd Patterson in the first round in 1962. Just eight years later, his wife would find Liston dead in their Las Vegas home from a supposed heroin overdose. Suspicion as to the cause of death pervaded among those that knew him. PARIAH explores the many theories behind his untimely demise. The film features exclusive conversations with Mike Tyson, boxing historians Nigel Collins, Jerry Izenberg, Bob Lipsyte, Don Majeski and Shaun Assael, upon whose investigative work PARIAH is based.
