Default How do you rate Michael Moorer at light heavyweight?

Moorer KO'd all his opponents at 175lbs but wasn't in the limelight getting the biggest fights until his heavyweight days.

How do you rate him? And how do you think he could have done against the best light heavies?

I believe the Search function would've beaten him.

Bob Foster, Archie Moore, Paul Berlenbach, Victor Galindez, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad, and Matthew Saad Muhammad would have feasted on Michael Moorer....would have stopped him. The lightheavy stylists..Billy Conn, Maxie Rosenbloom, Harold Johnson, Willie Pastrano and John Conteh would have doped him out and beaten him as well...some of them within the distance.

How do you rate him?
With his only real win of note coming against Leslie Stewart, not very high..

A very difficult question to answer given that he was very untested at that weight class and never would be. The best that can be said, was that he had a huge punch and south paw style, plus Manny Steward in his corner.. Had he squared off with some of the other top men of his day, ie, Hill, Harding, Prince Charles, we might have more to work with..

Let's see:

In a dull fight, Maxie Rosenbloom beats him.

Foster stops him, as do Michael Spinks, Victor Galinez, and a few others.

Billy Conn embarrasses him.
