Re: Sonny Liston - Had To Lose In Lewiston, Maine
What was the point of the fight in Lewiston, Maine anyway ?
Did it make any money with the theatre TV ?
Just about every one of Sonny Liston's title fights was a farce. 3/4 of them anyway.
The first fight with Patterson was necessary.
Liston's next 3 outings were cynical or comical insults to the intelligence of boxing fans (most of whom may not have had much intelligence, granted).
