Default Re: Joe Louis vs Sonny Liston

This topic was up not too long ago. I picked Louis there. I said that I thought he would have to try to fight Liston the way he tried to fight Marciano. A younger version of Joe would be more effective than an older Joe obviously. This is the only way I can see him having chance against Liston. Liston was too much bull for Joe to bully.

I started a thread about Joe Louis vs. Jack Johnson some time ago, and I have seen a post here and there showing that some remember it. In it Johnson talked of Louis' being vulnerable to a right cross. Liston could find him with that cross of his, and eating his would fill you up faster than Schmeling's would.

I think I'm picking Liston this week, by ko. I may change to Joe next week. This one is a pick 'em for me.
