Re: Sonny Liston 'I Will Manage Floyd Patterson as Light-Heavyweight'
Lets not forget,
Sonny also knew Floyd was getting 'floored' on a regular basis in sparring sessions
in Highland Park, New York, and when Floyd came out to Las Vegas in 1963.
Just because he thought Floyd would have been a 'force at Light-Heavyweight', doesn't
mean Floyd couldn't have entered the Heavyweight Division on occassion for some
I think Sonny was onto something about Floyd's future potential.
Get a win or two in late-1963, then take Willie Pastrano in 1964.
