Archie Moore was in the classic 60's batman show for one episode.
Insert funny comment about that guy from Cincinnati here.
Yaegashi vs Arce.
Why would you do this?

To give the boring fence sitting answer I think this is a way tougher fight for both guys than their fans believe.
I'm not a fan of Wilder, I just feel like there's gotta be more interesting stuff going on in boxing than the 37th "Wilder bad" thread. It's like...
