Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you, if you're young at heart -- so goes the song. Maybe Moore was young at heart when he fought Clay on Nov. 15, 1962, in Los Angeles. But, according to "The Ring Boxing Encyclopedia and Record Book," Clay had a bigger advantage; he was young, period -- 20. Moore was 48. Take that, George Foreman.

IF ONLY ALL of God's children had the innate goodness and principled code of living, as practiced by Archie Moore, who is one year older than Methuselah, there would be no need for armies, courts of law, penitentiaries and signed contracts.Moore earned his way in the toughest calling of all, boxing, where the prime prerequisite is to punish or be punished. During the fight for survival, always toiling with his hands in a career that included parts of four decades, from 1935 to 1965, he became the world light-heavyweight champion and set a record for knocking out 141 rivals in 229 matches.
