Where, on film, can I see him struggling to land the jab on a low, smothering, elbow and shoulder stance?
Baring in mind Albert westphal was not world class and the result Liston recorded against him could have been achieved by most top 5 rated contenders Listons jab stats of that fight was only 6 landing of 21 correct jabs. Liston was even countered a few times. Not that good against a 57 guy who was not that good of an opponent for a world #1 contender.
