    I’m favoring Moore slightly. Tough match though

    Unforgettable fight experience whoever the winner is, seeing two people utilising the cross guard at the highest level would be a treat indeed how often have we seen that I wonder?

    You have said in the past you believe Ken has the power advantage over Walcott whom had enough power to flatten durable men Moore’s size do you believe that Archie could stand up to that fire power for 12 rounds facing possibly the most skilled HW opponent he’s faced with a brutal body game and a top tier (forward) defence?

    Yes. But it would be a tough fight. No guarantees either.

    Norton walks through Archie ,Moore doesn't have the firepower to hurt Norton and Ken stops him around 10

    That’s what I was thinking, seeing two high level cross guards going at it makes this a very intriguing matchup, but I’d put my money on Norton

    I wouldn't put it past Archie to come out fast and jump on Norton who was a terribly slow starter. If it goes past 3 it's Norton's fight beyond argument but Moore anywhere near his best was a ruthless finisher. I could see him catching Kenny cold.

    Tough fight. I'd favor Norton by sheer size, power, and athleticism, but Moore is the grandmaster of his style an an ocean of boxing knowledge. He might clip Kenny and put him in trouble, but ultimately I don't see him pulling it off more often than not.

    Kenny either gets massively overrated or underrated. The Old Mongoose is an easy night for Kenny. Big punchers were Kenny's kryptonite and that ain't Archie.

    As chinny as Norton was I don't see him losing to any lightheavyweights.
