Currently re– siding in San Diego Calif. Moore has turned his talents to acting in the movies and on television speaking be– fore groups . and various bus– iness enterprises. Below Archie tries his hand at poetry , as he puts in writ– ing his version of what will happen when Cassius Clay meets Sonny Liston for the heavyweight championship in Miami Fla . . on Feb. 25.) By ARCHIE MOORE (Former Light Heavyweight Champion) With diminishing fervor for the fray at hand, Stood the Kentucky Bobe.on big feet with a well-laid plun. He'd previously been arrogant, cocky and cocl, But when Liston Th'Piston entered the ring, Clay look– ed like a tool! Loud Mouth already was wormed up, sweating and ready to fly, While the cruel Sonny Liston now smirking, stood idling by, Amid the scattered boos and fans shouting encouraging cheers . The hammy young actor desperately fought l:lock his fears. The hour was ten, Cloy's mouth was real dry, In the crowd of 5,000-felt lonely almost wontin_g to cry. Realizing he was young,too pretty to die. Butterflies in his belly-yet willing to try. With all his poetic wise cracks, brought this moment an himself, _ . Thinking:"Even if I esco,oe with my miserable life, I'll be on the shelf." So, try as hecou ld,he could not hold back this night, And to get back to the old folks at home, man' he's really gotta fight. As in all championship bouts, the M.C. takes the mike, The introduction of contend– ers, ex-champs, is what the fight fans all like.

Well, Mighty Mouth needled and meddled 'ti I he got Sonny rea I mad, So now Clay's in deep trouble, and man! that's bad Clay's trembling in his corner, still glancing at the clock, The bell is about to ring, and his knees continue to knock. 'J:h' Lip took a deep bow and drew a nice hand . And had previously boasted "I ' m the best in the l,md!" Better 'n the best, as he was wont to say, "I AM THE GREATEST-– THE CASH-US OF CLAY" . Clay sees the clock, but the time he can't tell, It's too late now - for there goes the bell! From his corner came the Bear,steamin' like a freight, Swung where C luy was, a split second too_late.
