ABSTRACT
The article discusses highlights of the light heavyweight boxing championship match between Archie Moore of the U.S. and West Indian Yolande Pompey at the Harringay Arena in London, England. Moore, who was behind in points throughout the fight, defeated the 27-year-old Pompey with a knockout in the 10th-round. Moore relates that he won the fight by using the strategy of the mongoose when it kills a snake. Observers noted that Moore's slow start in the first six rounds gave him the chance to study Pompey before landing his fatal punches.
