Re: 'Why I Took A Dive' by Sonny Liston
The bout was 'fixed' in the way that Sonny Liston was not going to 'try' to win.
Not that he couldn't win.
a) Linimiment in the eye's
b) Torn shoulder muscle throwing a punch
c) Pre-fight behavior
d) Sonny Liston's background
e) Re-match contracts pre-signed
Of course, what other modern day fight has all these 'factors'
