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

Easy there Lord Tywin,,,

This was Sonny Liston's observation after the July 1963 Floyd Patterson bout, where
he stopped Floyd in 'One-Round' with mediocre punches in the rematch.

It was Sonny's suggestion.

Lets not forget, Floyd had to go to Sweden in 1964 to get decent money, and he
walked away from fighting Cleveland Williams in early-1964, which was a smart move.

Floyd versus - A) Willie Pastrano, B) Harold Johnson, C) Mauro Mina and D) Bob Foster would
have been great bouts.

This is 'No Knock' on a fantastic person in Floyd Patterson.
