    I know it’s a bit early to compare Michael moorer and Alexander usyk both southpaws !!! But moved up in weight to become heavyweights ? My question do you think usyk can become better then moorer ?

    Moorer won a HW title to Holyfield but when the real one showed up in the rematch it wasn't even close.

    Usyk has a better resume in his division at CW. He may not get a HW title or not but Moorer was lazy and didn't have half the heart. You wouldn't want to work with Moorer and have to struggle to get him doing things to your expectations, Usyk would have to be told hes doing to much .

    Usyk has a better chin,speed ,footwork /less power ,better ring IQ and is more complicated to get a gauge on .Hes a better HW right now just by being in there.

    Usyk is the better fighter. More reliant , and drive in him,you cant put that in someone ,Moorer would never had longetivity as champion ,Usyk will still have the drive to want to win if he losses. Moorer would also have a lot of big HW's who could punch and he didn't have a HW chin, Usyk will, hes not going to fold so easy.

    Moorer should have kept his hands up against Tua and old Foreman.

    But seriously, Usyk hasn't accomplished anything near what MM did at heavyweight yet. And he was in an historical fight (losing, but still).
    Can he? Maybe. But we'll have to wait and see.

    Tua fight shouldn't even count, no more than Clays losses to Holmes or Berwick.

    Moore was in no condition to fight, i believe he had attempted suicide that very same morning

    As for Foreman, well, he lost to a living legend and one of the hardest hitters ever in the game

    This is one dumb ass thread. Let's see Usyk fight a heavyweight with a pulse first.
