Archie Moore was much more than just a fighter. After 220 pro bouts over nearly thirty years in the ring, and a number of film and television appearances, "The Old Mongoose" spent much of his time in humanitarian and charity efforts. Paired up are (2) splendid Moore related display pieces, testifying to his prolific boxing ability, and also his giving nature, which Moore demonstrated regularly, while living in his adopted city of San Diego.

Present is a 1952 Ring Magazine commemorative belt, for Moore's light heavyweight championship, which he earned after defeating Joey Maxim on 12/17/52. Presenting in like-new state, this glorious belt is centered with a 9x8 medallion, featuring a proud eagle, faux diamonds, American Flags, and a brass plate that proclaims "The Ring Magazine Award World Light Heavyweight Championship Won by Archie Moore". Flanking bronze plaques detail "Defeated Joey Maxim in 15 Rounds" at left; and "St. Louis, MO. December 17th, 1952" at right. 


This high-quality belt was produced by the manufacturer employed exclusively by The Ring Magazine. Many similar belts of lesser quality were issued by other entities and are readily available, but none equal these The Ring belts in craftsmanship and presentation. It is also worth noting, that The Ring official commemorative championship belts, such as the one offered here, are much more difficult to find than lesser types. 


Next we have a 24" tall appreciation trophy, titled and dated "Golden Star Promotions 1983 San Diego Charity Boxing Show". Topped with a 9" boxing figure, this stately piece bears an extensively engraved brass plate, recognizing Moore's giving spirit, and his induction into the Boxing Hall of Fame. This dynamic trophy shows minimal wear and presents majestically.
