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

Sonny Liston offered that thought, after he destroyed Floyd in their 'second bout'.

I'm sure he saw what was on the horizon for Floyd, and Sonny could have been an
advisor, not really be a 'manager'.

Looking at what was out there in the Light-Heavyweight Division, Floyd could have
been 'the man' at 175 lbs. for more than a few years.

At least '3' bouts with Bob Foster, with Floyd taking the title into 1970.
