I dont know why he was so feared except for his excellent body, what was the win in between his loss to Satterfield and his loss to Liston that made Big Cat so feared.

Dejohn was also KO'd by Zora Folley and Eddie Machen in a 2 year period after the Liston KO of him.

Charlie Powell KO'd the 1959 version of Nino Valdes 5 months earlier than Liston
