Default Re: Ali - Liston II "Pre-Fight Info'

JJJ,,
For all the money Sonny Liston was supposed to have gotten from the
Patterson II fight, Liston-Clay I and Ali-Liston II, plus the revenue he was due from
InterContinental Promotions, Inc.

And so-called 'betting money', the guy was so low on funds, that he had to
borrow $3000 from the bank to go to Sweden, the first trip in 1966.
He had to put up his black Cadillac up as collateral, so he could take his wife and
friend/sparring partner Foneda Cox.

Jack Nilon, his former manager, went along as an advisor.
