Default Re: Sonny Liston vs. Larry Holmes

This again is a fight I would love to see! Liston seems to be under rated on this board, while Holmes has his share that love/hate him. I have been thinking about this for about an hour now...and...

liston starts strong establishing the jab, while Larry seems a little tenative about Liston's power. By the third Larry is getting a little more comfortable at establishing his range especially on the jab. by the 5-6 rounds, Larry seems to have taken control of the fight and is dictating the tempo. In the 7th liston stuns Larry. Larry is not himself again to around the 9th and he finnishes strong taking 10-12....And the verdict Draw!!!! if it goes 15 I will lean towards Larry but I see a Draw or if i fall off the fence, I would take Holmes in a SD/MD type vote.
