When Tony Ayala Jr. went 'bye-bye', 'The Sheriff was moved into the
#1 WBA Light-Middleweight position.

He was supposed to get the winner of the WBA Championship between
Davey Moore and Roberto Duran.

In your opinion, at that time, Senor, who do you think Clinton had a better chance of beating at that time?

At that time in 1983, Clinton was 29.

Though he had 'miles' on him, he was more than capable of beating
either Davey Moore or Roberto Duran at that time.

At 5' 11", and a hard-hitting southpaw, he would given both those guys
'mucho trouble'.

The one problem with 'The Sheriff', was that he always liked to move forward,
which meant he 'walked into punches'.......... see; Buster Drayton (May 12, 1983).

Davey Moore would have been dangerous for about '5-Rounds', then
Clinton would have taken over, and probably stopped Davey somewhere
around the 10th Round.

Roberto would have been out-worked by Clinton in the middle-rounds,
which means, that 'The Sheriff' would have won a close 15-Round Decision.
