Things They Said: Archie Moore

“I have watched Marciano fight and I have taken him apart like a watchmaker takes a watch apart. Marciano won’t be able to solve my defensive style, he can’t and won’t hit me. Marciano will miss more punches than he has ever before because I have the right style to beat him. Marciano lacks defense and I will pour it on when he misses.”

“I stepped back a half step, twisted my hip and hit him flush in the face with one of the best right hands I ever threw in my life.”

“Rocky made a great comeback to batter me down. I felt I was in the ring that night with one of the greatest fighters of my time.”

“Only time will reveal the Rock was a great
fighter and a great man.”

– Archie Moore
