I think Liston also still something like a 2 to 1 favorite in the Clay-rematch. History repeating itself during Tyson-Holyfield II.
Exactly! The usual Tyson fans were crowing like mad out here, he was back to better than ever, he was gonna kill, yada, yada. I had some good debates with friends who mostly laffed at me when i told them Lewis would leave him prone. Even then people here only half knew Lewis whilst Tyson was still feared and seen as almost invincible.
