I just cant see how liston beats vlad. dont get m,e wrong he could do it but id strongly favor vlad over liston any day. Thoughts?
Liston has a longer reach than Vitali by 4 inches......bet not many people knew that!!! The man had ridiculously long arms relative to his height. Also had melon sized fists. George Foreman has also stated that Liston is the one and only fighter he could not get to take a backward step. So Foreman, one of the bigger heavies with renowned power could not back Liston off. People don't actually realise what a beat Liston was.
