1961-06-10 [[Archie Moore]] w pts 15 [[Giulio Rinaldi]], Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NY/EBU. Referee: Ruby Goldstein. Scorecards: 11-3, 11-4, 9-5. Although Rinaldi (173¾) was in the fight for three or four rounds, thereafter he was floundering and incapable of working the champion out and ended the fight bleeding from both eyes, along with nose and mouth injuries. Moore (174½) was a clear winner but he failed to hurt Rinaldi as hard as he tried and had the Italian been more adventurous the result might have been different. Once again weight-making problems were blamed on the champion’s sluggish performance and lack of zip in his punches. Moore forfeited NY/EBU recognition in February 1962 for failing to defend against either Harold Johnson or Doug Jones.
