Moore vacated the British title in December 2007 to concentrate on the European title, which he won in March 2009 by stopping former world champion Michele Piccirillo in the 3rd round. He announced his retirement on 12 April 2010, upon receiving medical advice from the British Boxing Board of Control.
Moore boxed as an amateur before turning professional in October 1999. He won his professional debut against Jamie Rolfe scoring a knockout in the third second of the first round on a card that included Thomas Eade, Robert Hill Daniels, Paul Barnard and journeyman Peter Buckley.
Moore's first opportunity to fight for a title belt, the WBU Intercontinental light middleweight title, was in July 2001. However, Moore suffered the first defeat of his career when Scott Dixon stopped Moore in the fifth of the scheduled twelve rounds to take the title, despite Moore having Dixon down in the third round.
Trilogy with Michael Jones
In 2003, Moore fought Liverpool's Michael Jones for both the British and Commonwealth light middleweight title at the Everton Park Sports Centre in north Liverpool. Moore won this tough fight on points to win his first professional title. Moore retained the British title in subsequent fights and became the first Salford Fighter in over 100 years to win the Lonsdale Belt. However, this was not the last that Moore was to see of Liverpudlian Michael Jones, as the pair fought again in November 2004 again at the Altrincham Leisure Centre in Greater Manchester for the British title. This time around, Moore lost after being disqualified in the third round to hitting on the break. The pair again faced each other for a third and final time in July 2005 at the same venue and once again for the British light middleweight title, but this time Moore avenged the defeat he suffered the previous year by stopping Jones in the sixth round. Following this, Moore avenged his loss Thomas Eade in a huge showdown.
Matthew Macklin barnstormer
Moore's most high-profile fight in his professional career came in September 2006 when he fought Matthew Macklin in Manchester. Macklin, himself a former Irish middleweight titleholder and at the time being trained at Billy Graham's gym across the city from Moore's gym, helped to increase the rivalry leading up to the fight. Moore defeated Macklin in a "fight of the year" contender to reclaim the British light middleweight title.
Shooting in Marbella
Four years after retiring from boxing, Moore was shot twice once in the hip and in the leg in Marbella on 3 August 2014. Moore, working as a pundit for Sky Sports, was in Spain to train old foe Matthew Macklin, who now owned a gym in the Costa del Sol resort. In the aftermath of the incident, Macklin wrote: "Just to let everyone know Jamie Moore is still in hospital but he's OK. He was shot in his legs but the doctors have said there shouldn't be any serious or permanent damage done."
