Default Re: Mike Tyson v.s Sonny Liston (Bareknuckles)

Bare knuckle fighting is a completely different world. Hands are very brittle so in a BK fight you have to pick your punches alot more carefully. No gauze,tape and gloves. Remember, gloves are were designed to protect a fighters hands, not the other guy's face. With this in mind I think Sonny has the edge if he can measure Mike with that 85" reach and drop a couple of right hand bombs. In the clinch Sonny would do just fine as well being as strong as he was. I'd put my money on Sonny but I would'nt bet the farm.
