Moore seems to be getting hyped up because of the Macklin fight, but did Macklin do anything special to be so hyped off?
he stopped Chirkov with a brutal bodyshot in just one round and Chirkov had beaten Julio Cesar Vasquez .
Other than that Macklin's record doesn't show how good he really is .
I've never seen a man more determined to win a fight than Macklin against Moore , not Hatton against Tszyu , not anyone . Macklin fought like a man possessed(possibly an overused term but in this case it's true) , he seemed to be able to keep coming forward and throwing punches when he should have been falling to the canvas Wladamir Klitschko style(v Brewster) .
For Moore to beat a man of that skill who was prepared to give his life and then some shows what a win it was for Moore .
Moore is clearly above domestic level and I feel he's at or above European level . Whether he can make the next step is questionable , but he's in with a shout .
