Holyfields tendancy to fight back when hit hard would ultimatley make this fight a KO win for Sonny instead of a Decision, if Holyifeld tries to fight back after being stung he is going to get wrecked as soon as he tries to go for him and if he gets on the inside he will be even more screwed
By that logic more proven punchers like Tyson, Lennox and Bowe should have KO'd Holyfield. If Bowe, Lewis and Tyson can't stop you, the older smaller weaker less athletic Liston won't

What makes Liston strong and power? Pushing around and knocking 180lb men, his power is not proven against heavier, stronger, bigger men bar Cleveland Williams who has no real top wins himself

Holyfield has a good jab of his own and he combines with quick footwork where as Liston plods around. Standing still and plodding negates the quality of your punches even if the punches themselves are technically very good
