Archie Moore Knocks Out Alejandro Lavorante

Mar. 31, 1962 - Middle-aged Archie Moore knocked out 25-year-old Alejandro Lavorante in 38 seconds of the 10th round last night in Los Angeles, and the exhausted Argentine heavyweight was carried from the ring on a stretcher. Moore gave Lavorante a boxing lesson for nine rounds of the scheduled ten-rounder. The crowd of 12,500 in the Sports Arena was hushed for a few minutes while Lavorante was apparently unconscious on the canvas. Lavorante was carried off but regained his senses in a few minutes. Moore, concerned about Lavorante, went to his opponent’s dressing room and was assured Alejandro was all right. Moore, 45 years old, congratulated Lavorante for his performance.
