Well said,Manassa. As I said,on an earlier thread,it's virtually impossible for us to be objective about Frazier match ups at this moment in time.

Yeah. A year or two ago, I mentioned that Frazier could beat Liston by bobbing and weaving and countering with left hooks. And most people here tore me a new asshole, laughed at me, and took a crap on my opinion. "No way Frazier beats Liston," "You don't know what you're talking about," "Suck my dick," etc. But now most people here are saying Frazier has a chance only because he's deceased. I couldn't help but point this out. I'll be staying out of threads like this one.

Gee, sure am glad Liston is so much faster than Ali, and that's how we know Frazier won't be able to slip HIS jab. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Yeah ,Joe had that fantastic, long, sledge hammer jab didn't he?
Oh, and that booming right hand to complement his left hook.


The Liston that walked through Cleveland Williams bombs , stops Frazier inside 4 rounds.

Prime Liston was a wrecking machine. The Ali fights have distorted people's idea of him. Even Emmanuel Steward said Liston in '59 or so was the greatest HW ever, unbeatable. And it's certainly no disrespect to Smokin' Joe, another ATG. I just think Liston would have the advantage.

Well, let's not open up *Pandora's box with things Steward has said, Oce.




*Pandora had a large jar and Manny also thinks Nate Campbell is more skilled than Juan Manuel Marquez.

Liston might just be the worst heavyweight in history to match any swarmer against.

He likley beats the lot to be honest.

The thing about Liston is, if a swarmer like Frazier does manage to slip inside his reach which is still doubtful considering Listons pole jab that because of it's power and accuracy does the equivalent of a good HW's straight right and is faster than most people give credit for.

Once he's inside his reach Liston is versatile and can brawl or box, once someone gets inside his reach. He lets go with his powerful hooks and uppercuts and being heavier and stronger than Frazier would force him back out again, then start the jab routine all over again.

I think this is thee worst possible match up for Frazier excluding Foreman so I would go for Liston TKO4. The stoppage being in the same fashion as Foreman with Joe never actually being counted out.

yeah, I had a feeling if I quoted Steward I'd catch hell! Fair enough. Still Liston was a monster a couple of years before Ali. ymmv.

Liston-Frazier has got to be the toughest match for me to choose a winner. It really could go either way. Anyone care to sway my decision?

On the surface Liston fits the bill of someone who should beat Frazier and probably by stoppage. But I don't know if its a forgone conclusion. While being a very big puncher with precision ability, Liston was not really the same kind of slugger that Foreman was.. George beat up Joe using hooks and upper cuts, whereas Liston broke men down with the jab and right cross - two shots that Joe was pretty good at slipping. Frazier also had the kind of upper body movement and hand speed that could have given Liston problems along with the fire power to test Sonny's heart.... I think this is a better match than some give it credit for... Liston should probably be favored, but again its not something I'd bet money on.
