Known as “The Fearless”, Moran is recognized by some historians as a former world bantamweight champion. During his career, Moran knocked out former lightweight king Battling Nelson and also fought boxing greats Jim Driscoll, Packey McFarland, Abe Attell, Ad Wolgast, and George Dixon. Moran retired in 1916 with over 100 fights.
Nat Fleischer, a noted American boxing writer and collector, ranked Moran as the #3 All-Time Lightweight; Charley Rose ranked him as the #5 All-Time Featherweight; Herb Goldman ranked him as the #8 All-Time Featherweight; Owen was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2002.
