Moorer is better than anyone Dempsey beat and both fighters could knock the other out. It suits Dempsey as a match up as Moorer is going to stand in front of him and exchange. Moorer is technically better though with his jab, high guard and shorter punches and he could punish allot of Dempsey's mistakes.
In some ways it's a similar match up to Moorer-Cooper so I'd say it depends on rule set. If Dempsey can knock Moorer down early and stand over Moorer he wins, if he can't Moorer can regroup and begin to pick Dempsey apart with his superior technical skills
EDIT just noticed the 2 versions, I think the heavier Moorer almost certainly wins, too big
that whole jumping out of the ring must have made those sparring sessions with Tate really tough on the legs...
like that goofy pole ricky hatton use to jump over in between heavybag roounds
