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
Middleweight James Toney tko'ed Holyfield.....people sometimes forget that.
