Sorry if I'm asking something odd, but do you think the sentence in bold makes sense? If it doesn't, how should I correct it?
...I know Mike is more powerful than George. However, George is more superior to Mike in technique than Mike is in power. So, if the two boxers fight, I'm sure George will win.
What I tried to say was that the degree to which George is better than Mike in technique is higher than the degree to which Mike is better than George in power.

I'd change it to something like 'George's technical superiority outweighs Mike's extra power'. 'More superior' doesn't work.
