    I think moorer has enough in the tank to get past Ruddock.

    Ruddock really built his rep on those two tough fights against Tyson, neither of which he was ever close to winning. Other than that what were his best performances?

    Moorer had plenty of mental issues and was inconsistent in the ring, but he at least showed he's capable of putting it all together from time to time

    Great match. Could go either way, but I lean toward Ruddock by KO. He's bigger, stronger, hits like a mule, and has a better chin. He could also box when he felt like it.

    Micheal Moorer by UD with a moment or two where it appears that he’s been poleaxed nigh to decapitated but with him rallying back and firing hard nearly forcing Razor to his knees as Atlas screams in the background.

    I'd go for a Ruddock KO here. Round 6 to 8.

    I'm going to say big ko early for Ruddock.
    MM, the more skilful fighter but his chin let's him down here.

    I’d lean towards Moorer to win it with his better skills, being especially effective with his right jab, but I wouldn’t feel too confident about it. Moorer didn’t have a good chin and I wouldn’t be surprised if he got starched out after taking a few too many Ruddock Smashes.

    Ruddock hits too hard for Michael. Sooner or later he'll land and from there I just don't see MM staying upright for much more.

    Evander Holyfield beat Michael Moorer in the 2nd fight ....by basically just going after his chin . Razor by KO

    Moorer by decision or late TKO. Michael's right jab would confuse the hell out of Ruddock. Moored could drop in an occasional left behind it. Rinse and repeat.
