Liston took lots of opponents lightly, never quite trained properly to his trainers lament. But I'm sure you'd understand why his trainer was reluctant to try and force him to train properly.

Can't really blame him for not training properly, based on how rudely and painfully he dealt with his opponents prior to Ali (with the exception being Marty Marshall).

He would often neglect putting in the roadwork and try to focus on sparring.

But he had the physical dimensions and gifts to destroy most of the men he faced, none the less. Very heavy hands and very strong.

But he needed more than that to beat Clay. Unfortunately (I would say)
