That's without even watching it.
The only 'big money' name out there was Floyd Patterson.
And Las Vegas would never have sanctioned a Sonny Liston vs Floyd Patterson III bout.
Plus, Sonny's contracts were all under scrutiny. He was done in the

The only reason it got to Lewiston, Maine - is beacuse they were
desperate for anything, and William Faversham Jr. had connections up there.
