Photograph article dated March 30, 1962 partially reads, "A gross gate of more than $100,000 and upwards of 13,000 fans will pour into the Sports Arena to see aging light heavyweight champion Archie Moore and youthful, towering Alejandro Lavorante fight in a 10-round catch-weights bout rated 6-5 take-your-pick bet. This battle matches age and experience against youth and the big punch, showing the 6-foot, 4-inch Lavorante against the 5-foot, 11-inch Mongoose. They go in as heavyweights, with Moore expected to weigh in at 192 pounds, his Argentine rival at 210." Photograph caption reads, "Archie Moore - at crossroads."
