On the other hand, Vitali Klitschko, despite being six inches taller and 34 lbs heavier, was stopped by the puffed up lightheavy Chris Byrd. Byrd was dropped three times and stopped at lightheavy by Shaun George.

Size seems to be your only criteria. It is not mine when going decades back and forth through history.

Moore, by the way, scored more ko's than anyone in boxing history. An odd pick to use to criticize a man's chin, especially when they were about the same size.
Between 2 good guys whose other attributes are equal the bigger man will win.
With other attributes I mean things like speed, footwork, skill etc.

Also Vitali is overrated, and Wlad isn't Vitali.
