Default Re: Sonny Liston '13-10' Favorite Over Cassius Clay For Rematch

On the eve of the fight,

'Odds On Liston Fall On Eve Of Fight'

Las Vegas had it at Round 9.

The 74 Newspaper Sportswriters voted......42 to 32 for Cassius Clay.

George Chuvalo after witnessing Sonny Liston in sparring,
quietly said,

'Sonny has no legs, he stands there like a Wooden Indian,
and he moves like a Freight Train pulling out of a rail-yard'.
