Patterson and Liston May Fight Next Year

Nov. 21, 1961 - Floyd Patterson (left) and Sonny Liston (right) will meet in a title match next year if each wins his next bout, boxing promoter Tom Bolan said today. Patterson will defend his heavyweight crown against Tom McNeeley Dec. 4 at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Garden 45 minutes after Liston fights Germany’s Albert Westphal in Convention Hall, Philadelphia. Regarding the Westphal bout, Liston said today, “The fight won’t take over three rounds.” He seemed more concerned with Patterson. He said, “The way I see some fellows drop Patterson I’d like to drop him, too. But, if he kept getting up the way he did when Ingemar Johansson fought him, I’d quit myself.”
