“Not yet. You see, when he fights (Paul) Andrews it means that he will be going after the title. Because who is after Andrews? (Archie) Moore. Let us see after each fight. Moore is very smart, so Floyd has got to get as much experience as possible before Moore.” -Cus D’Amato, Patterson’s manager, on his future prospects.
