This would not surprise me! Moorer was a notorious bitch so I could see him being dropped by a middleweight.

Well Miranda KOing the Dawson should be mentioned

Also Lara was WW when he spared Hatton. He is a southpaw but he is a lot bigger than Haton...

I've got footage of a young Vic Darchinyan (before he'd won the IBF flyweight title) sparring six hard rounds with a prime Israel Vazquez (who was a world champion at the time).

The gym was packed and people were surprised that Vic (who was a midget at the time) was giving Izzy so much trouble. At one point Vic drills him with a big straight left and Izzy goes reeling backwards at a rate of knots. Izzy then gets hit with a big follow-up barrage.

If I was scoring the session in rounds I would have given most of them to Izzy but Vic certainly served notice that he had a big future in front of him.

Nigel Benn said he'd been hit with with baseball bats that hurt less than Mclellan's shots.
