Joey Maxim's bout with Floyd Patterson pitted an aging fighter against an up and comer who would eventually become Heavyweight Champion of the World. The fight went the distance and both fighters performed admirably. However, there was a distinct disparity as to who won between sportswriters and fans and the two judges and the ring referee. I have written my e-book using old newspapers and books.

Anthony Strollo became the chief lieutenant of Vito Genovese, who was head of a New York Crime family. Strollo disappeared in 1962 and his remains have never been found. There has been speculation that he disappeared voluntarily, perhaps going to Florida where his friend Joe Adonis lived.
