    I agree, I said "not the greatest" because his chin isn't as good as, say, Harry Greb or Jake LaMotta. I view his chin as certainly strong, as most of his KO loses are not in his prime.

    Walcott's chin is certainly worse in my opinion.

    Not at HW oddly. Moore thought fighting at hw was easier because they were so slow. And it showed. Moore has the better wins overall but Walcott has the better performances against the big guys. Both pretty close and both capable of putting up a great performance or a stinker. My gut tells me Walcott takes it but wouldn’t be surprised if Archie KOs him

    If he could take Ninos power he could prob take Walcott’s. Although Walcott generally knocked you out w the shot u didn’t see. Either way I think the fight ends in a KO. One of them isn’t making it

    Neither looked like straight rights to me and the Marciano one definitely wasn't.

    I don't think Valdes hit as hard as Walcott.

    I'll take Walcott by a decision , I think he'd drop Moore but not stop him,,, it's a real good matchup

    Oh, you meant right cross. Moore had better right cross anyway.

    From 1945 to 1961 Archie Moore beat every one he fought except Charles, Marciano and Patterson. 3 HW champions.

    In that time span he fought a ridiculous amount of top level fighters, that ridiculous I don't have the patience right now to list them all.

    From 1935 to 1945 he had a great run as a MW, but was never able to beat Yarosz, Wade, Booker or Burley. He was, however able to secure a reputation as an excellent fighter.

    From 1944 to 1954 Walcott was able to beat everyone he fought aside from Louis, Layne and Marciano. The during this time he fought a high number of ranked HW fighters and secured the HW championship.

    From 1930 to 1940 he would often show glimpses of excellence but was by and large a journey man.

    Despite these two having a reputation for being inconsistent, it isn't really the case imo. During their best runs they both were quite consistent against world class fighters.

    That being said, Moore lost to the best HW guys he fought, and i think he'd do the same again here.

    Almsot certainly by knockout.
