Default Re: The Sparring Partners - 'Talk About Cassius Clay vs Sonny Liston II'

Once again....the reason no one wanted the fight were as described. It had little if anything to do with the potential of a fix. It was all about Alis ties to the nation of Islam, Malcom x being assassinated and Ali life being threatened. The fear was what happened to Malcom would happen to Ali and in a boxing arena this may also take countless lives. no one attended the fight because of where it was, high ticket prices and the fear something bad was going to happen along the lines of what happened to Malcom x. This is why knowing history is so important. Wrong conclusions can be drawn as what was done here and other posts concerning these two outs.
