60 years ago today, December 10, 1958, a remarkable comeback in the history of professional boxing occurred when 42 year old Archie Moore overcame what appeared to be almost certain defeat to retain his world light heavyweight boxing title against 29 year old Yvon Durelle.

Here are the highlights and here is the full fight, and here are the records of Moore and Durelle.

The rematch was more one-sided.
