I count Duran as a great composite puncher, but Moore is out of his reach.

"Skips from a crouch"--? A la Dempsey? Would you mind explaining that a bit? It's an interesting point.
Ah, no, I meant Duran's ability to squat up and down while skipping rope. A sure sign of his agility and overall physical prowess.

On punching, I think his body work was truly elite. Maybe the best I've seen for precision.
