I just think Dempsey was a greater ATG...... I have reservations about this match-up.

Liston's speed is also critically underrated on this forum. He wasn't lightning, but he was certainly faster than our current heavyweight champions.

It certainly isn't the best tactic walking into Liston's jab, I think a prime Demsey had very good head movement and was very quick, and he was NOT easy to hit.... The Dempsey we see against Tunney is an imposter.

Big Dempsey fan, but I can't see him beating Liston. Although Jack used to eat up big slow guys in the past, Liston was in another league to those fellas. That jab, reach and power will present a danger zone that Dempsey will have to pass to land his own hooks. And being perhaps one of the most aggressive fighters in the sport, he would keep trying to close and fight with Sonny.
Both guys have tough chins, so it's not going to be an easy fight for anyone. I just feel Dempsey will get hit more and the shots will start adding up until he can't take anymore.

As was the Liston we saw against Clay/Ali.

Even the Liston who crushed Patterson was a step slower than the version from the Machen fight.

I just can't envision Dempsey being able to avoid getting tagged by Liston. Dempsey had a great chin, but he never faced anyone who punched as well as Liston.
