Default Re: How good was Davey Moore

Davey Moore,

Was absolutely 'not rushed'

According to his Manager/Trainer Leon Washington, it was a 'calculated' decision
to go after the WBA Light-Middleweight Championship in Febraury 1982.

Despite the 8-0-0 (5 KO's) record, Davey was plenty experienced, with 96 amateur wins
and International experience.

At 22 1/2, and ranked as the #10 WBA Light-Middleweight, there was more to gain
on the upside, than not taking the bout versus Tadahi Mihara.

And, Davey was a clear (2-1) Favorite to defeat the 'undefeated' Mihara.
