Default Re: Joe Louis vs Sonny Liston

Very interesting match-up.

Louis stood up to Max Baer's punches, Liston to Cleve Williams'.

Louis had his Billy Conn, & Liston had his CC / Ali.

What Clay did to Liston was to not be intimidated by Liston's "evil eye"
staredown....the bully now was not the bully.

If Louis doesn't blink, then he is the better technical fighter and could /should win the decision. But if he blinks, then see the Tony Galento type left hook on the Bomber's jaw, except this time he doesn't get up.
