Default Mike Tyson VS Sonny Liston!

Who wins this and how?

Sonny has the range and the power. Killer jab, hes way more of a man than buster Douglas thats for sure.

Tyson has the unorthodox style that experience dosnt prepare you for, amazing defense, speed combined with power for offense.

Imagine the stare down!

I think Mike destroys Liston in 2 or 3 rounds.

Liston would easily destroy Tyson, Mike would walk into the ring pissing his pants. Liston just standing there would KO Mike.

Liston-Patterson. Just a few rounds longer. Liston KO3 or 4. And I rank Mike like 10 places higher than Liston.

Nobodys stopping a prime Mike in under 10 rounds.
Mike may eatI a fewa jabs and hooks and may get stunned, however
Mikes body assault and power overcomes Liston. Tyson KO
5. Tyson has a better chin imo.

I think it would be very similar to what Tyson did to Berbick..Tyson was just too much for Liston.

A fat washed up Journeyman KO'd Prime Mike in 10, what do you think a real fighter would do to him.

Mike would shit his pants and cry like a girl when Sonny Liston stepped into the ring.

Any body who picks Tyson is just a Tyson fanboy true impartial fans will all know Liston would win this fight better boxer best heavyweight jab ever, strong powerful when him and Foreman sparred George said he couldn't push Liston around and Liston was the only man that stood up to him if Liston stood up and pushed around a young Foreman what would he do to Tyson, remember physically Foreman was much stronger than tyson and taller than liston aswell

Young Foreman couldnt handle an elite techniciann with power to
boot. There is a significant diiference in hand speed and combinations.
Tyson's defense was hard to crack, Yes Liston can score on the inside,
however Even someone with Listons power will need to unload all night
on Tyson. An elite jab isnt gonna be enough. Ive read on esb that Larry
Holmes wasnt surprised by Tysons power but his speed, that will make
the difference.
