He loses a tough but clear decision.

Everything Hopkins does, Moore does slightly better, and Hopkins doesn't have the power to repair the deficit.

Hmm.

Moore was quite capable of carrying over 200 pounds on his frame and looking good in the process.

Weird how much weight he was capable of gaining and taking off.

I agree that Moore doesn't stop Hopkins. I feel we might see a knockdown though if peak Hopkins opens up late trying to claw back a deficit.

Interesting matchup. I think it's quite competitive. I favor Moore.

B-Hop fought at LH Tarver and Wright. Two superstars who aren't peanuts. B-Hop even managed to wobble Tarver.
Moore fought Joey Maxim and Bobo Olson.
Moore's style is made for B-Hop. Moore's slower and B-Hop has better defensive skills,plus a pretty good chin.
Moore certainly wouldn't dominate B-Hop. Would be a good contest,but B-Hop wins this.

Yes, the legend Antonio Tarver and he even wobbled him and a blown up Jr. Middleweight.Quite a resume.Hopkins was a great Middleweight who has'nt proven anything at Light Heavy.Moore K.Os him late.
