Bro, Sugar did business with the mob. Liston was a little different. He'd worked with them from day one from day one. He'd seen what they could do from day one. And he was probably in a situation where he could be exposed as a rapist at any time by these guys. The mob cleared up a LOT of messes for Liston.
