On May 28, 1962 at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles the “Ole Mongoose”
Archie Moore squared off against Willie Pastrano. Both of these men
had held the World Light Heavyweight Title and Moore was the current
titleholder. Pastrano had recently moved up to fight as a heavyweight
so this fight was a non-title affair. Moore was always difficult to
fight, but so was the slick left handed Pastrano and neither man
could gain a definitive advantage. The fight was declared a draw
after 10 rounds. Presented here is an official on-site poster to the
event. The poster pictures both fighters and Joe Louis who was
involved in the promotion. The poster is cardboard and measures 22” x
28.” It has edge and corner wear and has been creased. There is some
discoloration from age. Archie Moore posters are quite scarce
especially when fighting someone of Pastrano’s importance.
