  • Description

    Archie Moore, recognised as Light-Heavy weight Champion in many parts of the World, and Giulio Rinaldi of Italy, are both nearing the end of hard training periods in preparation for their "title" fight at Madison Square Garden, New York, June 10.

    Rinaldi has been training behind Leone's Restaurant, near Madison Square Garden. He beat Moore in a non-title fight in Rome last October, and expects to win again. Known for the hardness of his punching, he is classed as a rough fighter.

    Moore, who admits to 44-years of age though his mother says he is 47, appeared very fit and ready at his training quarters at Kutsher's County Club, Monticello, New York, recently. During a three round training bout with sparring partner Greatest Crawford, he boxed without protective headgear and exhibited a fast combination of punches. "My plan is to win", he said, "and precise details will be revealed on the night of the fight".
