Default Re: How highly do you rate Sonny Liston as a puncher?

second time this week i've heard that, are hens teeth a real measure of rareness??

anyway, liston had the hardest jab in heavyweight history and a damn fine left hook. I'd rate him in the top 15 at heavyweight overall for punchers...off the top of my soon to be drunk head i'd have:

Top Tier (power):

in no order...

Shavers
Foreman
Lewis
Baer
Louis

Top Tier (delivery and power):

in no order....

Louis
Lewis
2nd Foreman
Tyson
Wlad (suck it)

Liston would probably feature in my top 10/15 for the second list. Pure power no, but his delivery was spectacular
