He also beat Ali!








At a staring contest, but that may just have been a rumour.

I will add Nino Valdez to that list, as he was a good prospect, and also add that Cleveland Williams was in his prime when Liston beat him. The Williams that Ali beat up on had been shot by a police officer and was physically no longer at his best.

Liston fought some very good competition on the way up and destroyed them all for the most part. I think Liston's competition pre-Patterson was better than Foreman's competition pre-Frazier. Foreman obviously did more while champion however.

Its more the domination he held at his time. A feared champion, in the true sense.

Patterson was I think the first man to win the title twice, and also at the time the youngest man to win the title.

Floyd is a legend.
