Re: Ali - Liston II "Pre-Fight Info'
Was probably more mentally de-moralized than anything else.
Nobody cared if he won.
And the old 'Mob' connections were fading out of the picture.
Jimmy Cannon said it best, 'If Sonny wins this fight, he will have nowhere to go.
Nobody wants him around anymore, and the big money fights in Las Vegas will not
come his way, because he has no boxing license. The old fight club circuit which
Sonny was groomed from is over, now its big money arena's and closed circuit broadcasts,
both of which Sonny doesn't fit into.'
