Really? Unless your only looking at the more well known pictures of the older Moore that fought Ali there is maybe only a marginal difference in muscle mass between the two. Doesn't matter how you spin it anyway, Moore's ability to put on and drop weight while competiting against the best in short periods of time is nothing short of amazing; its not a discredit to Jones that he can't match that kind of legacy, few can. Moore was a one of a kind.
