Default Re: Sonny Liston 'All Things About Sonny Boy'

May 25, 1965

Sonny Liston was to get 30% of the 'Live Gate' receipts from the bout in
Lewiston, Maine - as per his contract with I-C-P.

The 'Live Gate' pulled in approximately $200,000 - which have netted Sonny $60,000.

But, a law-suit followed Sonny into Maine, and his $60,000 cash take was 'garnished'
by U.S. Marshalls.

Sonny 'got nothing' off of the 'Live Gate'.
