ABSTRACT
The article profiles boxer Charles Liston. It mentions that Liston will fight Floyd Patterson for the heavyweight championship at New York's Yankee Stadium in June 1962. It states that Liston is the most controversial figure to fight for the heavyweight championship after Jack Johnson, the first of the great African American champions. However, detective sergeant James Reddick considers Liston as a troublemaker because he has been arrested 19 times, and his underworld connections are notorious.
