    I'd favour Bruno, but I worry about his chances in a fight where jabbing would be difficult. Moorer is one of a few contemporaries of Bruno who could outjab him, and the jab was a very essential punch for him; he became much less effective when Tyson took it away.

    Still, prime for prime, I think that Bruno probably lands a series of big bombs and takes Moorer out before Moorer gets to him or Bruno tires.

    There is a battle of the jabs. I wouldnt say Moorer would automatically
    Outjab Bruno, Brunos jab was formidable. Bruno's power is too much
    for Moorer. Bruno KO 5.

    I'm a long-time Moorer "liker" but I think he physically matches up poorly with Bruno and gets stopped. I don't feel certain about it. But that's what I'd favour, Bruno by stoppage inside six.

    The only way bruno loses, is if he gases and that aint gonna happen here because Moorer wont be around for that long

    dumb comment :verysad

    Moorer was more of a ''blown down'' heavyweight at 175 than he was the opposite

    I think Bruno lands something big (or not even that big) to wobble Moorer in the first few rounds, and he proceeds to finish off Moorer.

    Moorer could be pretty dangerous though when he was hurt. He fought back in those occasions, and Bruno didn't have the greatest chin.

    Interesting, ive never thought of Bruno/Mercer

    My prediction is that that fights goes like Morrison/Mercer

    Bruno's power carries him through on this one. Providing we're talking about Frank at his best,which,imo,was 1993.
