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

New York State Athletic Association Commission - Chairman was Edwin B. Dooley,

The same guy who banned Sonny Liston from ever participating in a bout
in New York because of his ties to the mob underworld underlings.

Mr. Dooley denied Sonny Liston a boxing license back on April 26, 1962.

As per Mr. Dooley, 'As long as I am the Chairman of the NYSAC, Sonny Liston
will never have a professional boxing match in the State of New York, period.'

And he found nothing wrong with the bout in Lewiston, Maine.
