No disrespect, but Moorer beat nobodies and second raters at 175, Spinks beat top flight comp in one of lightheavyweights toughest era's. Looking at it from an objective standpoint, Moorer doesn't belong in the top 10 let alone number one.

Spinks #2, but Double M #1.
Moorer was a murderer at LH. 22-0 (22 KO's) as a Light Heavyweight. I remember seeing him for the first time on an ESPN show in the late 80's and watching the opponent become intimidated the moment Moorer stepped into the ring.
It's not like he was a failure as a heavyweight either. I know history has not been kind to him, a lot of that he can blame himself for, but nobody can take the masterful performance over Evander away from him.
