Tua was never the same after the Ike fight ... he simply lost his spark ... I see Liston dominating wit his jab but it could have war like moments similar to the Ike fight ...

Right-a-roonie. This would have some great moments to excite the crowd.

An exciting battle that Liston stays in control of with his mighty jab.

Wins wide, but its never boring.

Sonny Liston would wipe the floor with Tua
Liston was no Lennox Lewis. Tua was no Leotis Martin , Marty Marshall , Cassius Clay (after an embarrassing gift decision against Doug Jones and a yet even more embarrassing ugly undeserving lucky win over a journeyman in Henry Cooper)
Actually Clay was one of the most undeserving challengers ever .

Tua would have brutally KOd hypejob Sonny whom could only beat the likes of Floyd Patterson and some low level clubfighters who happened to contend in a very weak era for the HW division.

James Toney and the 2005-7 Sam Peter would have schooled Liston .
Liston could be considered a puncher only against the shakiest heavyweights and even some of them had a good chance at beating him .
