I could agree if sonny was a dance master and rocky was easy to hit with the jab and only a moderatly strong swarmer with no real punch but Rocky was very strong, hard to hit with a jab and had two handed power. size wise Liston is still shorter and lighter than old joe louis, even if sonny is younger and more dangerous the size is not a problem in itself for rocky. Even so at least in title fights old joe Louis would stay in a fight when the going got tough...
