Default Re: Sonny Liston vs. Larry Holmes

Where training regimens are concerned, Holmes sometimes blew hot and cold, but he actually overtrained for Witherspoon, in his desire to forget he was primarily a boxer, and try to take Awful Timmy out.

Larry went 15 rounds with Norton, Berbick and Cobb, finishing strongly in all three. Sonny never went beyond 12 rounds, although he was fine at the end against Machen. Still, his performance against Machen was not quite up to the standard of Holmes' 12 round shutout of Shavers.
Yeah,I think Willie Reddish could Slam that medicine ball harder into Liston than Arcel could into Holmes.Sonny could look very awesome in his workouts.
