Default Re: Would this be as important as Foreman's victory over Moorer?

It would be a remarkable win but would fall short of Big George's accomplishment.
But was Moorer the best in the division in 1994? I don't think that he was. Moorer was definately a good fighter, but there were other guys in the division who were better. Riddick Bowe and Lennox Lewis are two fighters that I would place above Moorer, even though they didn't have any belts at the time. There's no way George Foreman would have been able to duplicate his miracle KO of Moorer against either of these two guys.
