* This matchup has most likely been done before, but IIRC I haven't seen it mentioned since the older batch of posts disappeared some months ago. Either way it's another chance to state your pick n' reasons why.
Ill give liston a slight edge ,he was better defensively ,and inside ,threw shorter punches,and had that pole of a jab,Foreman perhaps has the edge in power and strength,durability about the same,Foreman was better at cutting the ring off ,but that wouldnt be a factor here,so Liston the better boxer scores a late stoppage,though he may have to come off the floor to do it.

--not a difficult pick. Liston would stop Foreman after round 7 sometime.

Whether or not Foreman is 2 inches taller and has more weight is not enough to convince me that Liston is not stronger than he. Liston was enormously strong, as was Foreman, but I give Liston a slight edge. The jab would tame Foreman and there is no way Foreman has a chance of outboxing Liston. Foreman's only chance is a KO and I just don't see that happening. It is more likely that Liston handles Foreman's aggression with his jab and maneuvers him into straight stunners. George gets desperate.... and soon enough he gets tired. And George ain't fighting tired for 8 rounds -not against Liston.
