Foley was Ko'd by 12 fight Lavorante less than a year later and 2 years later by 185lb Doug Jones so I'm not so impressed.

Nino Valdes was 35 years old and the Liston fight was next to his last fight,also Valdes was KO'd by Charlie Powell 4 months before Liston so I'm not so impressed

As far as Cleveland Williams you cant really tell when he fought quality other than Terrel who he later drew with, Big Cats power was not evident by his record against contenders


Sorry I was supposed to be done with this "Just when I want to quit they draw me back in"
