Default Re: Sonny Liston 'Losing To Cassius Clay Is Just Good Business'

August 20, 1963

The man behind the Big Bear now is Joseph Glaser, President of the
Associated Booking, largest independent booking agency in the world,
including 700 theatrical performers.

Joseph Glaser said he will attempt to remove Sonny Liston from the
'grips of racketeers' who cut up the Champion's Pie into little pieces,
leaving Mr. Liston with crumbs.

Mr. Glaser said, that the Champion will be involved in numerous boxing
exhibitions over the next 8-months, in an attempt to remove the
tarnish from his image.

Mr. Glaser and his new partner Thomas Gallery plan on taking over
Sonny Liston's contract in June 1964, after Robert and Jack Nilon
promote the Champion's next title defense.
