Re: Mike Tyson v.s Sonny Liston (Bareknuckles)
Liston was a leg breaker for the maffia early in his boxing career. The police in his home town caried his photograph in their patrol car's with instructions not to approach him. If he and Tyson walked into a dark alley together then Liston would be the one walking out.
A bare knuckle fight is a completely different game to a street fight. It tends to be more drawn out than a gloved boxing match not less. The deciding factor would likley be durability and stamina. In this case the winner would probably be whoever adapted to the new rule set best.
