Default Archie Moore P4P?

What's the highest anyone has him on a P4P basis?

Anyone have him in their Top 50? Top 20?

He was a great puncher, fantastic stamina, tremendous heart and courage as well as ring smarts. At lightheavy i would say that he is possibly the greatest ever.

1)Hank Armstrong
2)Sugar Ray Robinson
3)Harry Greb
4)Benny Leonard
5)Willie Pep
6)Roberto Duran
7)Ezzard Charles
Archie Moore
9)Sugar Ray Leonard
10)Pernell Whitaker

He was a great fighter. Great technician who could crack and break a guy down when he had to or counterpunch guys sluggers. Second greatest lightheavy ever behind Charles who dominated the same era but didnt get a title shot. Guy just had his number but other than that Moore belongs among the top 10. he was lightheavyweight champ a decade and beat the best from middleweight to heavyweight.

Top 15 locked, and sealed. Maybe even top 10, he certainly makes a case.

I'm more taken back by it being such a consenus. I agree he belongs so highly, just that everyone agrees without a hiccup...
