It was rumored Shavers had bronchial asthma, and if he did not get you in 5 rounds, he ran out of gas.

Sonny Liston, 50-4 with 39 knockouts, probably experienced the most difficult jab of all time. In his battle with, I believe that, Wayne Bethea (considered it was Bert Whitehurst, but he went the length twice with Liston) or whoever the fighter wouldn’t appear out for the next round. When his coach questioned him, and when he opened his mouth, several teeth ended up missing even although he had a mouthpiece in.
