decay of bone, and the deterioration of muscles and tendons.

His report was later removed from the files which were sent to the
State of Massachusetts Athletic Commission, for approval of the
'first' November 16, 1964 rematch date.

Robert Nilon did everything to 'squash the file'.

I would tend to believe Sonny was born in May 1927 - making him
36+ in February 1964 - just like William Faversham Jr. had found out.
