Moorer's victory over Holyfield solidified his place among the heavyweight elite. He possessed a unique combination of speed and power that made him a formidable opponent for anyone in the division. Moorer's left hand, in particular, was a devastating weapon that sent many opponents reeling to the canvas.
In 1994, Moorer faced George Foreman in a highly anticipated matchup. Despite dominating the fight for most of the rounds, Moorer was caught by a powerful right hand from Foreman in the tenth round, which ended his reign as champion. This loss, however, did not diminish Moorer's legacy. He displayed tremendous heart and resilience throughout his career, and his accomplishments in the ring left an indelible mark on the sport. He recaptured the I.B.F heavyweight world title a third time in 1996.

Moorer's career spanned over two decades, and he retired in 2008 with an impressive record of 52 wins, 4 losses, and 1 draw. He held the distinction of being a three-time heavyweight champion, a feat achieved by only a select few in boxing history. Moorer's impact extended beyond his in-ring achievements; he inspired a generation of aspiring boxers with his skill, determination, and never-give-up attitude.
