1963-06-17 Ralph Dupas w pts 15 Denny Moyer, Civic Centre, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - WBA. Referee: Benny Goldstein. Scorecards: 70-66, 69-68, 69-68. Starting fast as in their last contest, the champion began to outspeed and outdance Moyer (154) right from the opening bell, throwing long lefts and straight rights, often out of a crouch. Dupas (150), circling both ways, again proved a difficult target to nail, and it was not until he tired that Moyer made a determined run for home during the last five or six rounds. If Moyer had made his move two rounds earlier it might have been a different story.
