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.
