Welcome to the history of the heavyweight championship of the world.
Yahoo Sport will release a podcast led by legend Steve Bunce for each year of the golden age of boxing; the 1960s.
This podcast covers 1964. This was the year when Muhammad Ali finally took on Sonny Liston, with Ali as the underdog.

The podcast covers the build-up to the fight, where some experts debated just how serious the beating handed out to Liston’s opponent would be.
There’s a cameo from The Beatles as they are turfed out in quick time by Liston before the huge bout came to pass.
Elsewhere, we track the rise – if a stuttering one – of Joe Frazier in the American Olympic trials, and then to the Tokyo Olympics.
