Prime Time Boxing's Archie Moore vs. Floyd Patterson combines the original radio broadcast by Don Dunphy, the all-time most dynamic and knowledgeable boxing announcer, with additional commentary by boxing legend Bill Cayton and award-winning sports commentator Bob Page.
Rocky Marciano has announced his retirement as undefeated heavyweight champion of the world, setting the stage for world light heavyweight king Archie Moore to meet 21-year-old Floyd Patterson of Brooklyn for the vacant world heavyweight championship title. Patterson's fast hands and peek-a-boo style carried him to 30 victories in 31 pro fights prior to his bout with Moore. Floyd's one loss came in a close eight-rounder against former world light heavyweight champ Joey Maxim at Brooklyn's Eastern Parkway Arena, where Floyd had 12 of his first 21 paid bouts. Archie Moore, a pro since 1936, is favored, 12-5 at fight time. The color commentator is Win Elliot. Your blow-by-blow commentator for this radio broadcast is the great Don Dunphy.
