This is not true. If you look at the pattern of Liston's footwork he always took the big long step, followed by a short little stutter-hop.
He does exactly the same thing, and then decides to go down.

It's grasping at straws to claim that Ali's punch caused the little stutter step, because Liston did that every time after the long step.

Watch the whole 'fight' again. Liston lifts his foot in a short step after every long step he makes with that front foot.

But I know you're just repeating something you read elsewhere anyway.
