    What composition as Samuel Peter literally gets a faceful of fist from Vitaly Klitschko...

    I saw that on Deadspin, but I didn't know if it was real or not.
    That's a heavyweight punch.

    That's pretty good, but I'll still take Ali standing over Liston as the best boxing photo ever.

    The Ali Liston shot is one of the best sports photos ever.

    The best sports photo is probably the one of Bobby Orr scoring to win the Stanley Cup for the Bruins against the Blues

    Each his own.

    Photog always has time to get an aftermath shot...it's a much easier shot.

    Getting a shot like the Peter shot in that flash instant, is more difficult.

    No doubt the inspiration for the Honky Tonk Man

    Most difficult shot doesn't always mean best shot.

    But yes, to each his own. And that Peter shot is pretty awesome. (yes, that's what she said.)

    I agree.

    But it is a factor, to me.

    Why am I not surprised that a poster who thinks Matt Bryant kicked the most clutch FG in NFL history also thinks that the Ali-Liston photo is not the best boxing photo ever...
