Default Davey Moore - Anyone Know...

How badly injured he was after the Duran fight?

Did he spend any time in a hospital?

I don't know but that was a pretty heavy beating and his trainers/ref should be ashamed of themselves. It was clear early on that Duran was just on another level, at around round 5 or 6 it just stopped being competitive altogether and Moore just got pummelled. In terms of the physical punishment, I think it was pretty bad but it was more psychological. A young fighter isn't ready to be beat up like that in only his 12th fight. He was promising but that fight changed it all.

Good summation. He was a fine, very promising fighter, but in stepping up in class against Duran it proved far too much to handle and practically ruined him (he beat a past prime Benitez afterwards, though Benitez was forced to 'retire', but lost most of his other fights).

They specifically picked Duran because he was a shot 'name' that would glitter nicely on his resume.

How good would Davey Moore have turned out to be if he hadn't fought Duran?

Yes, it seemed a perfectly sound fight for Moore to have, a no brainer, a decent pay day, a good name on the resume, and little chance of an upset...

Hindsight is beautiful thing.

I took my nephew to see this fight on closed circuit.

He told me beforehand that he didn't like boxing, but I said this will be a great fight....so he went.

After Moore got mangled, he told me "That's why I don't like boxing".

Moore was never the same...it was non-competitive.

That was what was good about boxing. It was meant to be non-competitve.... Duran was expected to lose and lose bad.

Exactly. Duran seemed washed up...he had lost to unranked Kirkland Laing just eight months earlier.

I myself expected Moore to beat Duran handily. I was surprised not only that Duran won, but that he won in such devastating, one-sided fashion.

Moore was never himself again psychologically after this loss.
