Liston, on the other hand, mainly fought and established himself against cruiserweights.
For whatever reason, this concept doesn't seem to register with some people here. I'm not one to always believe that bigger means better, but it generally applies when you take two very good and talented fighters, only one is considerably bigger than the other. Its not like Holyfield fought big useless ****heads in Bowe, Lewis, Dokes, Foreman, Moorer, Mercer, or Tyson. These were very good fighters who could utilize size and strength to their advantage.
