ABSTRACT
The article reports that boxer Cassius Clay has agreed to fight Sonny Liston in Las Vegas, Nevada in February 1964 for the World Heavyweight Championship title. According to Clay's Louisville Sponsoring Group, they do not want the fight to take place so soon but Clay has insisted and they had no choice but to capitulate. Boxing experts who oppose the fight have asserted that the fight will be a mismatch since Clay still needs more experience and Liston will be too strong for him.
