Davey Moore was the Featherweight Champion of the World from 1959 to 1963, punching his way to a 56-6-1 record while always admitting that "Only 10 seconds separate me from being champion or nothing." A tough little boxer with a powerful punch, he died at the age of 29, a victim of the sport he loved. Born November 1, 1933, a fighter from the age of 14, he died March 25, 1963.
