Fact VS Fiction: SHOWTIME SPORTS Director/ Writer Simone George tries to have it both ways. Creating a logical fallacy with his Puzzle/ Mystery “THE LIVES AND DEATHS OF SONNY LISTON.” “Argumentation is concerned primarily with the logical proof of propositions.”

“This was never intended as a cut and dry lineal story, nor did we market it as such,” points out George. “Our goal was to provide this big playground to explore and investigate his life and career. He meant something different to so many different people who encountered him. Every researched theory is offered and discussed at full-length, but the purpose of the film was not to provide closure but rather ensure a new generation of boxing fans were clued in to one of the most troubled and ignored figures in boxing history.“What we wanted to accomplish with this story was to present open-ended and make up their own conclusions.
