Muhammad Ali shocked the world and won before the bout even started. He totally took Liston off his game by acting crazy at the weigh-in (which can be seen here) and showing no fear. The Greatest predicted an eighth-round knockout and said that he would kiss Liston's feet if he lost. Liston refused to leave his corner at the start of the seventh, giving Ali the TKO even after Sonny's corner allegedly used a substance to irritate Muhammad's eyes. The rest is history. Oh yeah, that acting crazy tactic doesn't work for everyone and can sometimes turn out to be an epic fail. We see you, Mike "The Situation."
