    liked that cheers, finding your husband dead having been away for six days then ringing the lawyer 4 hours before the police is super suspicious.

    my theory is that she was there when it happened and it took her six days at her mums to decide how to deal with it and went back with the lawyer to cover up whatever needed to be first.

    guess they missed the arse balloon or planted it

    Yep there's suspicious details which we'll never find out.

    Hardly think it haunts boxing mind. Never knew he fought Wepner either.

    Might pop to see the gravesite the next time I'm in Vegas - 'A Man'.....

    He beat the living shit out of Wepner, even when he was well past his best. I think Chuck needed about 70 stitches afterwards.

    During the interview afterwards, the press asked Sonny if Wepner was the bravest man he had met ......

    "No, but his manager is" , Liston deadpanned.

    He had his moments of gallows humour, did Sonny

    1970. I must have missed it too as thought he had a cameo in the last series of Luther.
