Default Heavyweight Tournament with a Twist: Second Round (Jeffries/Liston)

Remember, read the Question!!!

*If you vote for anything with an * in, then your vote will not count as you are not answering the question properly.

You do not win a LPR fight by KO, you win when your opponent fails to come up to scratch and toe the line...

And clearly as they are fights to the finish, you do not win a LPR fight on points!!!

Jeffries incorporated wrestling into his training ,grappling with his pal Farmer Burns,he was physically strong, and quick on his feet for a big man.Jeffries was also a good body puncher especially with his left to the ribs.
Liston was known as a street fighter,and , was adept at long range jabbing with his telescopic reach,but he was also a crafty inside fighter, and knew when to cover and give ground
.Liston likely had the superior fire power.
Durability goes to Jeffries ,stamina too. I'm going to wait and hear the other arguments ,though I suspect Jeffries will get the majority vote under these rules.

based on what..your affinity for Liston?
Under queensberry rules, yes i see Liston beating ancient Jeffries quite bad.
But Jeffries posses every physical tool and more, needed to beat any other boxing champion under LPR rules.
I think he's quite a big favorite against Liston

The iron chinned Jeffries could survive Liston's punches. Not sure Liston could handle Jeff's blows. If they can handle each other's punches and it becomes a contest of condition and willpower, again I go with Jeffries, who never slowed down and never quit.

I think Jeffries should be favourite here ,but Sonny took Williams shots ,I think he could take Jeffries.

You would be kind of mad to hit Jeffries with a barefist on his chin.
