Default Re: Sonny Liston - Had To Lose In Lewiston, Maine

Bill B,

I-C-P made $1,000,000 for the Clay vs. Patterson bout.

Robert Nilon pulled almost $500,000 for himself in the Cassius Clay vs. Floyd Patterson bout.

The man was a 'money genius'.

He actually told Sonny, the Championship is worth nothing to you.

Later, Robert Nilon said, 'If Sonny wins the rematch, he will get
100% of nothing after that, because no commission will license him'.

'If he loses, he will get 45% of I-C-P's net take for Clay's next defense. That buys alot
of Cadillac's which Sonny has been accustomed too.'
