Default Sonny Liston 'I Will Manage Floyd Patterson as Light-Heavyweight'

July 1963,

Sonny Liston stated the he would he would 'Manage and Promote' former Heavyweight Champion
- Floyd Patterson, if he would drop down to Light-Heavyweight, where he belongs.

Liston stated, that he had hit his sparring partners harder than Floyd in their July 1963 rematch
here in Las Vegas.

Sonny Liston, 'I really didn't hit Floyd that hard, and he went down from my set up punches. He's
not capable of fighting with big Heavyweights. If he wants, I will help him get the Championship at
Light-Heavyweight. I will gladly manage him and promote him if he wants me. The offer stands.'
