    It's masterful. He's fighting inside, but not trying to outmuscle the bigger man. He moves his head and upper body as he approaches to give less of himself away, then launches hard shots immediately as he dives in, not waiting to give Valdez a chance to set himself. Then he holds or turns him, backs off, and repeats. Nice.

    Moore's defense is stellar in this fight.

    Before I saw this fight I had Moore as my best contender to never win the title at HW and it only helps my case for him.

    Surprised this hasn’t been viewed by most on classic. Maybe give it a bump for those whom didn’t get to enjoy it
