Odds-Makers have posted Sonny Liston as a '9-5' Betting-Favorite in Las Vegas,
which has stirred up the pot a bit, which will bring in late money on Cassius Clay.
The smart money has yet to come in, as the boys in Las Vegas are waiting for
further instructions from the 'Chicago and East-coast connections.
Sonny Liston who predicts a knockout victory, said there will never be a 'third bout'
between him and Cassius Clay.
Sonny Liston, 'If I win, it will be Ernie Terrell and George Chuvalo next, and in that order.
I have no plans on retiring.'
Cassius Clay, 'If I lose, I will retire. I have trained very hard for this fight, because I
know if I don't, I can be beat.'
