I've heard it going both ways.  Sonny was doing well after the losses to Ali. Frazier could have given him a title shot. But you know what? At that time, with Joe at his absolute peak and Liston being over 40 years old, Joe would have likely crushed him.

If they fought, Sonny would have been Joe's biggest victory right under Ali.
