I agree.

always thought Khaokor was the tougher, more proven and well-rounded fighter of the two, though both do have similar styles.

Who's the best Bantam you could envision him beating Mantequilla? Don't think he'd win but he'd have had an awesome fight with Harada. Or that other 80's Bantam Jeff Chandler?

One thing I will say about Moon is that I never noticed a discernible shift in style as he moved on. Just seemed to pace himself a bit better and sit down more on certain shots. I've never seen any of his amateur footage and I personally think whilst Khaokor didn't fight a 'prime Moon' (obvious choice would be Moon of the Konadu fights at super-fly I believe) but Moon was just one of those tough guys that could whack who might a well be chucked in at the deep end: sink or swim? And he swam, through waves and typhoons and usually remained standing at the end.

Not sure really.

He has two big issues with me when comparing him to other very good Bantams.1..he will be vulnerable to getting outworked by a lot of the more consistent boxer-punchers and aggressive fighters....2...he's methodical enough where mobile fighters and cuties are going to pose a lot of issues as well.


He could potentially match up well with Ortiz.Fighters who i might put money on him if he was fighting...maybe Pintor, Davila, Chandler, Murata, Castillo, Martinez, Herrera, Rudkin, Borkhorsor.That kind of fighter, those who aren't big movers and would be looking to score with combinations while in range.I wouldn't be surprised if he got outworked and outboxed by them though.

Bantam is STACKED when you look at the depth there, imagine the top five, many others that aren't there.....sickening really

Good response. Someone who's able to constantly be on the move and score OR have a consistent in and out approach are gonna cause him problems. Stay tight to him or stay in range too long and you're gonna get outworked, outmanouvered and pushed around.

Despite his proven chin I'd pick the Holy trinity of punchers (Zarate, Olivares, Jofre) to get him out of there, but I can't see anyone not having their hands full with him.

Great thread...

About to be hijacked. Anybody know what the story was with another one of Khosai's opponents, Isreal Contreras? The guy scored some specatular wins (over Espinosa, a one round kayo of Vasquez, another first round victory over a tough, durable Jesus Flores), but suffered a couple of surprising defeats too (against Eddie Cook and Elvis Alvarez). Guy looked like a world beater against Espinosa, but suffered an equally decisive loss to Cook...Is it just a case of him having a really good power and a really bad chin, or was there something else to explain this type of inconsistancy?

Moon just came out throwing bombs. His best peak seemed to be about the 2nd Konadu fight

I believe so. I really like Roman from what I've seen.

The few tidbits I got from you and Mantequilla (I think! Sorry if wrong
or forgetting someone elses contribution) have been gestating in my mind and what with the fact he thought so often and was never stopes have acquired him an almost mythical status in my head. Looking forward to this

How do you think Galaxy matches up with 'the best'? Who's the best fighter you'd pick him to beat?
