Pepe isnt interested in the reasons , he is only interested in derogating Muhammad Ali whether by implying fixed fights , or that he intentionally fouled opponents .
It matters not as long as there is a negative paper trail leading to Ali , that is his sole agenda.
I only read about 25% of his threads, read one ,read them all. Same agenda in every one.
What reason would be sufficient for a group in possession of the heavyweight title ,relinquishing that possession voluntarily?
With Liston out of the picture after Lewiston the mob were effectively out of the picture and ,out of control of the title too.
Where was the incentive to sell the richest prize in sports ?
Someone explain it to me.
