Charles L. „Sonny“ Liston (n. 8 mai 1932, Little Rock, Arkansas - d. 30 decembrie 1970, Las Vegas, Nevada), a fost un boxer american. El a fost între anii 1962 - 1964 campion mondial la categoria grea după ce l-a învins în septembrie 1962 pe Floyd Patterson. Liston era un adversar de temut, datorită agresivității și a loviturilor sale puternice. Este un lucru confirmat că Sonny Liston și managerul lui erau implicați în lumea interlopă a gangsterilor. Uriașul Sony ca și campion a pierdut numai două meciuri de box, ambele înfrângeri le-a suferit în fața lui Muhammad Ali.
