Early Life and Education
Dr. Moorer became the first African-American medical doctor in Orangeburg after completing his studies at Meharry. Upon returning home he established his practice on Amelia Street.
His dedication to his patients and Orangeburg during this era of segregation was unparalleled; he would often visit them without compensation to ensure their wellbeing.
Moorer is currently working on her next musical venture: MARROW, an ambitious collaborative concept jazz album produced by London-based Troy Miller (Gregory Porter, Jacob Collier, Laura Mvula and Jamie Cullum among many other musicians). This album blends eclectic melodies with piano as well as folk and chamber elements into complex rhythmic textures resulting in profound complexity – set for release sometime around 2022.
Moorer won 34 fights during his professional career, including 17 world title bouts across two weight divisions. Beginning as a light middleweight and becoming the first southpaw ever to capture WBO world heavyweight supremacy – these were highlights in Moorer’s impressive resume.
Moorer won his light heavyweight championship after defeating Ramzi Hassan via fifth round TKO and retained it nine times over two years. In 1991, Moorer moved up to heavyweight, dominating competition before facing Bert Cooper for the vacant heavyweight belt in 1992 and emerging victorious after both fighters were knocked down during an exciting slugfest battle that both fighters were knocked out during.
Moorer parted ways with trainer Emanuel Steward following the fight with Cooper and joined Lou Duva’s team for three subsequent fights, training under Georgie Benton.
