Default Sonny Liston's Annuel Opponents Ratings vs Ingo's

Here is what I got


The men who Sonny Liston beat prior to winning the title in 1962, and their ratings going into the fight with sonny


Eddie Machen- Rated # 3
Zora Folley- Rated # 1
Cleveland Williams- Rated # 10 in 2nd fight 1960
Mike DeJohn- Rated # 7
Wayne Bethea- Rated # 8
Roy Harris- Rated # 7
Marty Marshall- Rated # 7 Light-Heavyweight in the first two Liston fights, unrated by the 3rd fight.

Liston's record against these men 7-1


Men whom Ingemar Johansson beat, their ratings heading into his world title shot in 1959...

Eddie Machen- Rated # 1

That's IT

Henry Cooper- Unrated
Joe Erskine- Unrated
Franco Cavvichi- Unrated


Johanssons record against top 10 rated men 1-0




All my sources come from the Boxing Register 5th edition, Ring Magazine, and National Boxing Association

I think that Floyd Patterson was ranked fairly highly!

I believe the thread states ratings leading up to their title shots

In which case Ingo's resume is a bit thin, but his destruction of Machen is one of the most complete dominations of any #1 contender in the history of the division.

You can certainly imagine the impact it must have had at the time.

On a side note, Johansen Folley came close to happening after the Machen fight.
