Jones win over Hopkins was a very good victory as was McCall's win over Lewis. But the value of the wins have to be measured by what those men were worth at the time of the fights and not what they became later. That's all I'm saying. Still good wins though. At any rate I think we've gotten way too caught up in this argument about Moorer and Lewis. Back to the original subject. Do you still honestly feel that Oliver McCall was the more accomplished heavyweight in the 90's over George Foreman? That's fine if you do. But I just can't see awarding him that claim.
