    Remember how much Eddie Davis baffled Spinks with his cross arm defense.

    Moore utilizes it to win a UD over a befuddled Spinks.

    Moore by a KO. It's what he does.

    Depends, could Spinks stifle Moore in the way he did Qawi? I don't think so, but I'd be interested to see the responses here. Power is also something to consider from both men.

    I think Moore, with his IQ, would be able to limit Spinks left and 'solve' the Spinks Jinx. Moore close decision. Great battle for the purists, along with power.

    Archie by big beautiful knockout over Michael. Different leagues. Moore was a killer when he needed and I think he potshots Mike to the body and walks him in to the knockout before 10.

    Archie Moore was a great World Light Heavyweight Champion, Michael Soinks was a good champion as well. Difference was that the 1976 Olympics made Michael as well as his skill. Archie was baptized into the fight game, by fighting some very tough customers of his era and heavyweights. He was not made by television exposure, nor the Olympics. I see the experience and better skill spells victory for Archie, much too crafty for Michael, the Ol Mongoose by unanimous decision. Maybe he never became Heavyweight Chanpion, like Spinks, but Michael fought a 1985 version of Holmes, what would have happened against a 1979 edition of Larry Holmes.

    Moore UD. His wading in behind the crossed arms, throwing all the while is a puzzle Spinks doesn't completely solve. He should be mindful of Michael's uppercut though.
