Cleveland "Big Cat" Williams (June 6, 1933—September 3, 1999) was an American heavyweight boxer who fought in the 1950's, 60's and 70's. A Ring Magazine poll once rated him as one of the finest boxers who never won a title. Williams turned professional in 1951 and fought the best heavyweights of his era. He is best known for the two brutal bouts he had with Sonny Liston. Liston often said Williams was the hardest puncher he ever fought. Many have accused the champion at the time, Floyd Patterson, of "ducking" Williams. However, Williams did get a chance to fight for the title against Muhammad Ali in 1966. Ali knocked him out in the third round. Williams retired from boxing in 1972. In 1999, Cleveland Williams was tragically killed in a hit and run accident.Presented here is an original wirephoto of Williams.
