Default Re: Who had the better Career Resume...Liston or Johnson

It's a silly premise and conclusion to make anyways. HW back in those days were smaller than today.. but yet, they decide to still compare the era (knowing the above fact full well) with eras where there was generally bigger HW's. How does that make sense... You beat the best of your era and that is all you can do. During Johnson's time fighters and people were smaller in general and choose to be smaller to be able to last 45 rounds.. Johnson beat everybody and anybody who was a contender during his time.. and did so with utter ease the vast majority of time and multiple times at that. Guys who all learned very simillar techniques of the time, diet, strength workouts etc etc.. When the playing field was the same Johnson dominated far longer and far more convincingly than Liston.. Period. Because Bolt has run WAY faster than Jesse Owens.. does that mean Owens wasn't fast? No.. He was fast for his time and better than anybody else with the training and techniques of the time. Liston.. well.. he wasn't.
