Re: sonny liston vs jack johnson.....
Tough call, but I think Liston's best chances are in the early rounds. It would probably be a dull fight, and if Johnson started clinching early, that would work to Liston's advantage. I think Johnson would try to get inside Liston's head, long before the fight actually started. He would leave no doubt that he had no fear of Liston, and would be flashing his golden smile all over the place. He would play it safe, boxing Liston during the early rounds, taking no chances. He would only start clinching if he knew that he could handle Liston in close. He would talk to Liston throughout the fight, looking to demoralize him. I would predict that Johnson would survive the early rounds and work his way to a dull decision victory.
