It's a fair point. Liston fights well on the backfoot and could probably hold Marciano at bay for some time. But unless he Pattersons him. His feet won't keep him at his more optimal range. Marciano should dominate the inside. Liston is powerful but a bit clunky and slow and not really exceptional or structured for an in-fight.
