    I think this would have been an exciting matchup of similar sized southpaw sluggers. Both were skilled technicians who were not afraid to mix it up when necessary. I think this would be an exciting tactical battle with small bursts of brawling scattered throughout the fight.

    Who takes this one prime for prime?

    Does Sultan have the necessary pop to put Moorer down?

    It didn't take a whole lot on the elite level.

    Frankly, I feel that Sultan had better instincts and equal skills.

    I'm a fan of MM's but I think Sultan is a bad matchup for him. Moorer was a better puncher but he had a tendency to be lazy at times and he did struggle with guys that could move.

    Sultan had a short career and it was at a time when the heavyweight division was in the shitter but he had an outstanding amateur career and was a very smart fighter that knew how to win. I think he wins by UD.
