Default Re: G-man dropped Michael Moorer in Sparring?

I've got footage of a young Vic Darchinyan (before he'd won the IBF flyweight title) sparring six hard rounds with a prime Israel Vazquez (who was a world champion at the time).

The gym was packed and people were surprised that Vic (who was a midget at the time) was giving Izzy so much trouble. At one point Vic drills him with a big straight left and Izzy goes reeling backwards at a rate of knots. Izzy then gets hit with a big follow-up barrage.

If I was scoring the session in rounds I would have given most of them to Izzy but Vic certainly served notice that he had a big future in front of him.
