Aye like handspeed and combination punching. Fair enough he had perhaps the slight edge in power and pure strength.

Back to the topic, I do think Listons jab would give Louis potential fits. However eventually Louis body attack will wear Liston down,it's no secret that this would have more success as the fight wears on (providing Louis boxes smart and avoids big shots early on), enough for a late stoppage. The longer this one goes on the more it plays right into Louis hands. A mid-round Liston stoppage also isn't outta the question should Louis get sloppy
