Johnson was a counter puncher who was in the heyday of boxing and had access to superior trainers, he could use all the old timer skills to disarm listons power until liston was too tired, Liston would quit the fight in the 21st round

Seriously though this fight would never happen because Johnson had a reputation of dodging black fighters, he wouldn't fight little bitty Sam Langford from Canada at 5'7 and he is 6'1 I doubt he is going to give a shot to a hulking monster like Liston.
