Default Re: sonny liston vs jack johnson.....

Tough call.

Liston by rights should win behind the jab, but it isn't too difficult to imagine Johnson slipping the jab and tagging him an uppercut.

Could he handle the constant walking down pressure Liston would poor on him though? Very competitive. I think Johnson would win the inside exchanges here, if he can get there.

I'm gonna say Liston should start favourite, and he'd be my pick on points, but I wouldn't be surprised if Johnson won this fight (well actually I would considering both men have passed, but you know what I mean )
