Default Re: Best fighters at dealing with 'running' outboxers?

Archie Moore also enjoyed success against the movers. The newspapers had him winning against Pastrano even as an older man.

Usually a counter-puncher himself, he could turn into a spoiler and a pressure fighter as he did against Joey Maxim in his title winning performance, not giving the "runner" any room to run and always being one step ahead of the pursued. There were numerous boxers who had a reputation as spoilers and runners around those days, such as Jimmy Slade and Bert Whitehurst, men that Archie Moore defeated with ease when seemingly harder hitters than him could not.
