Featured Guest: Billy Moore
Archie Moore was a boxing legend. He was the Light Heavyweight Champion of the world from December 1952 to May 1962, the longest reign of his weight class. Archie won 185 of 219 recorded fights, with 131 of those victories by knockouts.
Archie was more than a boxer; he was a visionary who predicted a violent drug and gang epidemic that would trouble our nation. He proposed a simple solution: prevention. With this idea in mind, the Any Boy Can Youth Foundation was formed (later renamed Any Body Can Youth Foundation). Archie used the lure of boxing to instill discipline, respect and other positive values into the lives of youth to prevent them from falling into dangerous lifestyles.
Archie passed away in 1998 and passed the torch to his son, Billy Moore, who now serves as the President of the foundation. Though much has changed since the beginning in 1957, the mission remains the same: to empower San Diego’s inner-city youth to step off in life with their best foot forward, without cowardice but with courage and dignity.
