Default Re: What could Patterson have done differently against Liston?

Firstly have a positive mental attitude of superiority and dont be scared - be scared enough to perform at your best not too much to be intimadated.

Stay in the pocket, shoulder roll defense, tight guard, wait to counter, get out and reset, use latteral movement, don't be affraid to throw potshots when Liston makes defencive errors and when you get to the ropes turn him round so he has to cut off the whole rung again.

Using the right mentality and strategy can drastically change how fights pan out
