Re: Derek Chisora vs Sonny Liston
I think that Katsunari Takayama would have beaten Sonny Liston too. Don't forget that Takayama is in colour, whereas Liston was in black and white. I watched Liston fight Eddie Machen and watched it in slow motion, so I know Sonny was SLOW SLOW SLOW.
Advances in nutrition and science have also improved, so Takayama is actually a bigger man that Liston ever was. Size is everything and today's modern fighters are just too big for the old timers, I definitely include Takayama in this. If he didn't eat just sushi, he would be HUGE compared to Liston, who basically survived on the diet of the time, pig lard and gristle.
If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?
