Moreno's offense is the most obvious aspect where he is superior but his defense is also much better than Rigo's too. Rigo's D relies on maintaining and dictating range which he is very good, in large part due to his footwork which is great but when his opponent gets in range or especially when Rigo is trying to land punches his defense isn't anything special.

Moreno's defense is equally elusive at any range. He has very good footwork too and can box from the outside fighting off the backfoot but he can also stand in the pocket parry or block, slip, bob, weave and roll punches making you miss and counter you with combination punches. James Toney is another example of someone who could do that in the pocket, not alot of fighters who are known for their defense are capable of that and its what makes Moreno's defense exceptional in my opinion.
