Photograph article dated April 10, 1961 partially reads, "Dangerous Davey Moore, one of the most capable little men ever to wear the featherweight crown, is a solid 3-1 choice over Danny Valdez in California's first championship bout of 1961 tonight at the Olympic. The 15-round contest will not be televised or broadcast and is scheduled to start at 9:30 p.m. A crowd of 7,500 is expected...
