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.
