Assume Liston never gets his title shot against Floyd Patterson. Instead, Patterson clings onto the title until he loses it to...whoever. If/when somebody beats Floyd, though, that person will give Sonny his shot. (Like Ali eventually did for Zora.) In the meantime, Liston continues fruitlessly cleaning out the division. Does Liston lose his hunger? Does he stay active enough that his record actually gets better? Does he face more, and better, opposition during the extra years Floyd holds the title hostage? What does never getting the title from Floyd do for Liston's record, standing, and legacy?
