Greb is too small and gets annihilated in one or two rounds tops. Johnson and Gibbons are rugged and elusive and could last for awhile until Liston tracks them down and lays the wood on them. Fitz gets crushed ala Greb.

Charles is the most intiguing match-up. After all, he went the distance with Marciano once and defeated an ageing Joe Louis. That said, I just don't think Charles has the size, strength, chin, etc. to deal with Liston. The listless Sonny who let Machen go the distance notwithstanding.

Liston KO 7 Charles.
