Whatever you can say about Floyd Patterson, he had an incredible run of form at world level. He was beating legitimate contenders until two years after Liston's death in 1970. Liston to be fair was beating contenders up to 1968. Let's say that they decided to get it on for a third fight. We will pick the time of the Wepner fight, as being the last realistic date, and probably the one that makes the chances of a different result the greatest. The question is, could Patterson ever have beaten Liston?
