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

Computer Says,

Floyd Patterson could have made 175 lbs. thru mid-1967.

In 1968, it would have been a struggle, but not out of the question.

With Sonny Liston as an advisor, wins over Rodolfo Diaz and Wayne Thorton put
Floyd as the #1 Light-Heavyweight by early-1964.

Floyd could have won the Light-Heavyweight Title in 1964, by defeating Willie Pastrano.

1964 Defenses over - *Henry Hank and *Harold Johnson

1965 Defense over - * Jose Torres

1965 Heavyweight Challenge versus Cassius Clay

That's a start.
