1963-03-15Mike DiBiase
Madison Square Garden, Phoenix, Arizona, USAWTKO310
time: 0:20 | referee: Dick Moll
"Archie Moore came to Phoenix and took a match with wrestler Mike DiBiase. The match was set for 10-rounds, and was a challenge affair stemming from a previous bout that Moore had refereed. Needless to say, Mike was no match..Mike was taking a pretty good licking, but a cut eye was the cause of stopping the bout."
