Everybody knows the good things about Liston,i.m.o. here is a couple of negitive. After the Clay/Ali matches I kind of question his heart.Discouraged and quiting on his stool,and I think he took a dive in the second fight.Also heard that when he seen his own blood he had a tendancy to panic,like in the Leotis Martin fight.Speaking of Martin,that devistating right hand he threw kncocked Liston flat.If Marciano had anything at all it was right hand k.o.power.
Marciano probably had the shortest reach in heavy history.He would have to survive Listons jab (not to mention his Power) in the early rounds and hope to catch him in the later rounds.Marciano seemed to have tremendous stamina and was always in great shape.
Marcianos weight was mostly under 190.Liston 210 or later in his career more.
