I understand that, but how does being knocked out by an all time great puncher like Sonny Liston mean that you're a chinny fighter? Lot's of guys got crushed by Liston, plus Floyd was somewhat small for a heavyweight, making his legacy even greater that he surivived the heavyweight ranks in my opnion.
