You can't be serious?

Walcott spent most of his career at HW and he dropped or knocked out many fighters.

Moore has KOed and stopped rated HWs.

They don't come much more tested than these two, in their long careers they have faced quality fighters of all sizes and styles.

Don't know shit about that era.
It's a weird one but I still wanna know...

It was more about Moore's power credentials than Walcott, I do know know somewhat about him.

Moore stops a RING top 5 regular( Bob Baker) with a 19lb weight advantage and 3 inch+ height advantage. Tested enough?

For most of the 50s and 60s Archie fought HWs of various size and quality regulary, his punching power was always a factor. He dropped and hurt Marciano, has KOed some top contenders, sturdy fringe types, and blew out lesser fighters in the early rounds while usually at a weight and height disadvantage. In short, a very impressive Power Puncher resume.

It should be noted he also sent the bigger, younger, top 5 ranked up and coming brawler Lavorante out of the ring in a stretcher.

Put it this way, Moore had enough power to take out anyone under 230lbs unless they could be categorised as having a very good chin by world standards.

Default Re: Was Moore's power tested at HW?

Was an accumulation of his punches enough to stop many heavyweights? Yes.
Did he prove himself a 1-punch KO artist against heavyweights? No. He did stop some, but most required him to land a lot of punches before he was able to stop them.

Sure, but let's not sell his one punch power short. Are you claiming he didn't have a big right hand?

He just knew how to get an opponent out of there, whether it was through body-punching, an accumulation of punishment, a counter-punch KO or a cut stoppage. One of the greatest finishers of all time.

His stoppage win over # 4 ranked 6'4 212lb Alejandro Lavorante at age 45 is mighty impressive, considering Lavorante was coming off a big kayo over zora folley. Was Moore-Lavorante filmed?
