Default Sonny Liston vs Joe Louis

How does this fight go? Could Liston walk though Louis? Or could Louis ko Liston?

I sincerely hope this is some kind of a sick joke? Contrary to what old Malone would have you believe based from his viewing of ali-liston 2(pretty much the only liston fight he has watched) liston could take a punch

could the same be said for Joe louis?

Liston had a puncher's chance against anyone without fast feet and an great chin.

Ha ha, this is going to be a volatile thread. Too close to call at their peaks, Liston has the size, reach, weight, the better chin and the heavier punch. Louis has the speed, accuracy and consistency.

These guys could meet several times and swap results. I honestly think that if we are looking at a distance fight I'd slightly favour Louis's boxing but if there was to be a KO it'd be coming from Liston.

Sonny Liston had a great chin,better than Joe Louis.This is important.

Louis would be in a surprize when Liston would out jab him with his long reach.Liston's jab is also harder than the brown bomber's.Liston also had about 15-20 pounds on Louis.

Louis's punches were faster than Liston's,and his great combination punching.But Sonny had more power in both hands.

I believe Liston's ability to take Joe's punches,and establish the jab are the most important factor's of the fight.

I see Liston stopping Louis in between 6-10 rounds.

Long as you guys picking Liston realize that he wasn't at his peak for the Ali fights, I'm cool with it. Otherwise...you may be some serious Ali huggers.
