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

The only genuinely durable fighter he stopped legitimately was Vitali Klitschko and even that was because of his cut face.
Lewis didn't put that much importance in KOs.
He could have KOed more, but why should he put himself in a more risky situation?
