Holmes is the better all around fighter period.
You cant question Holmes heart you can Listons.
i agree that as much as holmes had somthing called a jab he had a left hand that did everything it was a tool not a punch.
liston was a deadwieght powerful left cross
holmes used it as a way of doing stuff inside the ring.
why so many people say who has the best jab they say holmes becuase his use of it.
