Default Sonny Liston 'Screwed Over BY I-C-P in 1965'

The same group Inter-Continental-Promotions that promoted
Sonny in his '2' Championship Bouts with Cassius Clay,

By November 1965, still had not reconciled with Sonny Liston for
his fight purse and other due monies.

Now, I-C-P (Rober Nilon) was going to reap in a large profit of
over $1,000,000 in the promotion of the Cassius Clay vs Floyd Patterson bout in Las Vegas.

Sonny, who 'took the dive' in Lewiston, Maine - was now dismissed as
a used up 'pain-in-the-ass' that nobody wanted around.

Still living in Denver, as a former Champion, but in a relatively obscure manner.
