Re: Rocky Marciano vs. Sonny Liston
Liston was fifteen-twenty pounds heavier than Marciano and a couple inches taller. We're really talking about less than Holyfield/Bowe differences here. Perhaps Liston should win. If you put that much stock in it. I never saw H2H monster in Liston. I also never saw the super heavyweight that was supposedly hiding in the regular-sized heavyweight literal weight and literal height. I mean, granted, I know it's there. I know the fact that he's 6'5 and 240 pounds. But, I could never comprehend it, in the "metaphysical sense" that other posters seem to be able to. So, because Marciano never fought a decent guy who was metaphysically enormous, I give him very little chance of winning a metaphysical battle against Liston. A regular physical battle, I'd call it a tossup, really.
