    If these guys had fought between 95-97 I think if Moorer had any kind of chin he could have easily jabbed Tyson to death to win. After seeing Moorer-Foreman and Moorer-Holyfield 2 I am not so sure he could survive a knockout in the early rounds. What do you guys think?

    Moorer's Chin sucks too badly, he could only beat Shot Tyson.

    Even then, all but arm-punching '05 rotten corpse has a great puncher's-chance early.

    Mismatch. Tyson would destroy Moorer. It would have been doubly fun to see with Teddy Atlas in Moorers corner.

    The Tyson that lost to Danny Williams may even beat Moorer in my opinion. I would feel pretty save betting on any version of Tyson before that to beat almost all forums of Moorer. And I'm a Moorer fan, just think it's a very bad style for him.

    Tyson KO 1. Id love to see atlas in Moorers corner as well.
    Bad matchup for Moorer. Moorer had power, but could
    Not hurt Tyson. Tyson would come forward, eat some shots
    because his defense wasnt elite post prison, then finish
    with a right hand or a left hook. Both from Brooklyn,
    but Tyson shows no fear and no respect, and I love that.

    In the actual timeline, Tyson would have won, albeit not easily.

    Damn shame for him that he didn't get this fight!

    Tyson was shot to crap when he lost to Williams. Moorer would have killed him on that night.

    It would have helped him more had he gotten out of prison a year earlier, before Foreman lifted the title from Moorer. That would have been a huge win.

    A good jab is not enough to deter Tyson at any stage of his career. I see Moorer having no other option but to slug it out with Tyson like he did with Cooper and Stewart. Suicide, yes, but at least he goes out in exciting fashion.

    I see Moorer having success with Tyson outboxing him but I see Tyson eventually catching Moorer with something and stopping him.
