Default Re: Ali - Liston II "Pre-Fight Info'

The originally scheduled bout for November 16, 1964 was 'conveniently postponed',
as the 'Marginal Tax Laws' were changed, and in 1965 boxers would be able to keep
more of their fight purse.


Everything 'points' to Sonny throwing the bout in Lewiston, Maine.

Could Sonny beat Cassius in a 'legitimate' bout in May 1965 - that is a tough one.
