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


But if he went down to Light-Heavyweight and won that Title, he would have
regained some of the lost respect from the public.

Lets not forget, after the second bout with Sonny Liston, he was regarded as a
failure by most, if not all of American Boxing Fans, and the sportswriters.

Most boxing pundits gave up on him, and suggested for him to leave the sport, as he
was disgracing his name and the Heavyweight Division.

Remember, this was the thought in July 1963.
