He'd beat Liston and Frazier, lose to the other 2.

Liston had really long arms and if you were strong enough to get inside like Holyfield would be, Liston couldn't get off or use his jab.

Frazier Holyfield would be war, I just give the slight edge to Holyfield.

Yeah but Liston could be a terror on the inside. Holyfield could win this due to the speed differential but he has to be very careful. He should manuever around Liston's jab, get inside to land some shots and then get out.

He would ofcourse beat Patterson

As for the 70's the Frazier fight would be exciting, possible for it to go either way but I've always given a slight edge to Frazier. In a series they may both take some.

I would pick him in a close fight with Norton.


Foreman and Ali would would take him.

He would have had as least as much success as Frazier (not sure if he could have beaten Ali, but he certainly wouldn't have gone out like Frazier did against Foreman).

with his conditioning I think that he could have been awsome at that time period. Holy was a skilled fighter with strength and would probably have been considered rather big in comparison to the heavies of the time, ofcourse liston is bigger but you know. Holyfield fighting ali, liston, foreman, fraizer, cleveland williams, shavers. Those would have been great fights. Neat idea whoever came up with it............Rockin'

Liston only really ever struggled with tricky movers, as well as his pistol left jab, he could work very well on the inside. You say because if you could get on the inside, Liston cound't use his jab like this was his only weapon he had, bogus.

Liston's hooks especailly the left one were devastaing, and he could use them fighting inside to the body and head. Aswell as fighting on the outside.

Liston also had pretty sound defensive skills.
