Default Re: Floyd Patterson 'The Clay - Liston Rematch, Was A Hoax'

Jersey Joe Walcott,

Had previously Referee'd the April 10, 1965 bout between
Carlos Ortiz vs. Ismael Laguna fight in Panama.

No complaints, as he performed well.

Wednesday, May 19, 1965 (Augusta, Maine)

One-week before the Clay - Liston II bout, The State of Maine Boxing
Commission had 'not' made a public announcement of the fight referee.

Jersey Joe Walocott stated, that he was being considered, and thought
it would be an honor to be the Referee in a Heavyweight Championship bout.
