Default Re: Archie Moore vs. George Chuvalo

The Archie Moore who beat Nino Valdez, Bob Baker, and Clarence Henry of 1953-1955 would cut chuvalo's face up into ribbons and soundily outbox him.

It is interesting that you bring up the Patterson fight because Patterson was about the same size as Moore, less elusive, and probably less durable and Chuvalo clearly wasnt able to walk him down.

Now what do the following fighters all have in common:

Howard King

Bob Baker

Pete Rademacher

They all beat Chuvalo but lost to Moore.

Go watch Patterson Chuvalo.
Split decision.
Chuvalo should have got it.
It was fight of the year.

Moore has the skills, but Chuvalo is no slouch, and I could either see him stop Moore in an eleventh round TKO, or a wide 12 round decision.

Oh, wait a minute, Baker did beat Chuvalo, so did Howard King,another Moore victim. Chuvalo was a level below Moore, tough as they come, but easy to outbox ,as the moderate Eduardo Corletti proved. One sided schooling for Georgie Porgie.
