Photograph caption dated May 29, 1962 reads, "Moore catches up with fleeing Pastrano. Archie catches Willie with one left hook." Photograph article partially reads, "The Moore fight was a difficult one to score. Pastrano, a will o' the wisp, 'twisting,' dancing and back-peddling boxer, and Moore, a flatfooted, aggressive and pursuing scrapper, gave the judges, scribes and fans two different attacks...Moore's hardest punch came in the fifth round when he shot a straight left into Willie's mid section, sending the Miami pugilist into the ropes. The second strand saved Pastrano from his first knockdown in 11 years of fighting."
