You don't think Sonny Liston could 'pull his punches'.
Plus, the young Cassius Clay could take a punch, was durable and
very adapt at slipping punches, especially 'slow ones'.
Question. 'If Sonny Liston defeats Cassius Clay by a one-sided knockout,
just what does he do next for a big money fight.
Don't forget the 1964 Marginal Rate Income Tax Laws, which would
take 77% of his fight purse.
The answer. The 37 year-old Heavyweight Champion goes,,,,,nowhere.
