World Light Heavyweight Champion, 1952-62. Gerald Eskenazi, "Archie Moore, 84, Master of the Ring, Dies", The New York Times, 10 December 1998: "He claimed to have been born on Dec. 13, 1916, in Collinsville, Ill., but his mother, and at least one boxing record book, fixed his birthdate as Dec. 13, 1913, in Benoit, Miss., a date his family confirms." When confronted with the discrepancy, he quipped: "I have given this a lot of thought, and have decided that I must have been 3 when I was born."
