Default the most under rated Light Heavyweight of all time ?

is Michael Moorer the most under rated light heavyweight of all time ?

he could have ko'd anyone ever at 175. in my life time only 2 fighters could beat him (prime)Roy Jones Jr jabbing moving for 12/15 rounds or Bob Foster the only LHW that could ko him.Michael Spinks would have got ko'd late imho. many fighters in his day ate their way out of 175 to get away and others just would not fight him listed below*
he had to go to HW to get fights and make $$
and i find that Boxrec gives him NO love over there, not in the top 100 all time ratings for the United States this is a joke WHO votes on this ?
he at least should be above Virgil Hill he would not fight him.

13 Michael Spinks
18 Virgil Hill*
27 Matthew Saad Muhammad
60 Charles Williams*
65 Bobby Czyz*
90 JB Williamson WTF
Jeff Harding
Thomas Hearns
Sugar Ray Leonard
Donny Lalonde
Dennis Andries*

Michael Moorer
22-0 22 ko's

good story on him

He's not really underrated at LHW, IMO.

I mean, he really didn't do anything at LHW. During his title reign I don't think he ever beat a Top 5 fighter at the time of his reign. And considering his reign was a reasonably short one, to be considered a Top LHW, you need those big wins, and for whaever the reason may be, he just doesn't have, any...

I guess there is the 'well we saw what he can do at HW and had he had the chance to display that he could have done this and that' but that's the key word, could. We can't judge from what he could have done.

The fact is Moorer's LHW resume is really weak.

An underrated LHW is Maxie Rosenbloom. He's not a Top 5 LHW but a surefire Top 10 IMO. Pretty much unknown or atleast not talked about, a shame.

Take your pick between Jimmy Bivins, Michael Spinks and Maxie Rosenbloom. It isnt Moorer, though I am a believer in him at this weight, as I know many arent.

Harold Johnson is the most underrated LHW imo, I thought he was robbed in the Pastrano fight btw. Moorer didn't really do much in the LHW.

Good choice for most underrated. He was a ring technician with some impressive names on his win resume.
