1. I'm not an expert on Fitz, he was an excellent fighter by all means.

2. RJJ did have a habit of making very good fighters look a class below. And RJJ would be every bit the puncher in this fight as Moore was.

Why do people talk about RJJs chin and neglect to mention Moores chin problems? Moore was ko'd 7 times, including ko losses in his prime and ko'd by Bivins, Booker, Morrow, Charles, Patterson, Marciano. RJJ hit harder than most of these and his speed and accuracy means he will land more.
To compare Moore and Jones on punching power is a flawed argument. Moore was a destructive puncher at 175lbs, sure Jones had the odd highlight as a puncher at 175lbs, Virgil Hill etc, but he wasn't the puncher Moore was.

And you seriously believe Jones hit harder than Patterson and the Rock? Seriously.

Patterson had a hell of a punch and while Marciano was a cumulative type puncher, consider his right hand versus Walcott as example of his concussive power.

I'd back Langford and Charles to beat Archie, I don't know Dillion enough to comment but to suggest Moore was over-rated is harsh. Harsh in the extreme.

I may give Spinks the nod. May.
