Muhammad Ali vs Sonny Liston

iArtMobile has been down for several days, but is back on its feet. Sorry for any inconvienence you may have experienced trying to navigate this site.

The Fight

In 1965, heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali fought former champion Sonny Liston. The bout lasted less than one round as Ali knocked Liston out with a right hook that came so fast that no one saw it coming; especially Liston.

I don’t follow boxing any more like I did when I made these paintings, but I do like to make some comparisons with boxing and my Christian walk. The Bible says to ‘fight the good fight of faith’ (I Timothy 1:12). One could say our fight is fixed. Jesus already defeated our enemy, the devil and his forces. All we have to do is keep standing, for the scriptures command; ‘Stand fast in the liberty by which Christ has made us free…’ (Galatians 5:1).
