Re: greatest aura of invincibility
Liston pre Clay.
You had to been around then to understand how invincible Liston was regarded. The general consensus was that he was there until he chose to retire. No one could beat him.
Times were different then. The HW champion was probably the highest regarded athlete in the world. Everyone knew who the champion was.
When Tyson-Douglas came along that wasn't the case. Not a lot of people knew and most didn't care.
