Default Michael Moorer vs. the 80s Alphabet HW champs

How does he do against the likes of Weaver, Tubbs, Spoon, Thomas, Tucker, etc?

I think Moorer would fit in nicely with the likes of those guys, basically on the same skill level. I think as a heavyweight Moorer always boxed too flat footed and would have had trouble with some of the bigger punchers and movers.

He could have beaten everyone of those guys, and then again he could have lost to all of them as well. It depends on how he and the others show up come fight night. I think that having a south paw stance combined with a fair amount of punching power could have given him an edge over some of those fighters. On the flipside, his chin would always be a risk factor. My guess is that at the end of the day, he blends in as being one of the pack rather than standing out as anything significant..

He probably beats Mike Weaver and Tony Tubbs

I'm 50/50 about Pinklon.

I think he losest to Tim Witherspoon, and Tony Tucker.

He's a middle of the pack fighter.

80s Alpha champs were not bad.
