    Jirov countered me the hardest for a single shot, Moorer was the hardest puncher consistently followed by Tua

    How many camps were you in with Jirov? Did you get to work with Thell Torrence? I was a pretty big Jirov fan, you gotta love a body punching lefty swarmer. What do you think went wrong with him? It was kind of shocking to me to see how badly he regressed after the Toney fight.

    Were you surprised when Moorer knocked out Jirov? I was hoping to see the winner of that fight take on Toney. At that time, Toney was a guest commentator and it had that feeling that Goosen Tutor was trying to set that match up.

    I was with him for Toney, Mateen and Moorer. A little he was very single minded in his teaching I was just a warm body for Jirov to fight. I think he just was matched with the wrong people he was fine in sparring.

    Moorer was so heavy coming into that fight. I didn't think he would be able to fight at Jirov's pace but it was Jirov that really tired badly and Moorer was clearly the stronger man. I really wish Jirov would have stayed at Cruiserweight. Would have loved to have seen him fight Mormeck, Bell or even Haye.

    Was Moorer a dick? He always had a rep for being a jerk. I know he got kicked out of Wildcard by Manny's camp for being a *****

    He was crafty, but not really a big threat in the ring at the age I fought him we didn't take it easy on him but he really was not anyone to worry about if you knew how to jab with him just make sure you are always in a balanced spot to parry and punch.

    I sparred him once when I caught him on the way out I begged for it, I was star struck and he picked on me in and out of the ring that day he was something else even though he had bigger boobs then my girlfriend at the time.

    Moorer used to go low if you shelled up because of him going so hard I would say he was more or less the same unless he came in depressed he would just go through the motions and you would be saved from him being a major butthole
