Re: Sonny Liston 'I Will Manage Floyd Patterson as Light-Heavyweight'
So he should just shoot himself in the foot as far as earnings go? Its prizefighting not legacyfighting.
Besides, by 1963 Floyd was also already the youngest and the only two time heavyweight champion and an Olympic Gold Medalist.
The majority of fighters faced with the possibility of their career hitting a brick wall choose feathering their nest over worthless trinkets and platitudes every time.
