Bobby Moore with Eva Jones Young…

INDIANAPOLIS—Fort Wayne’s own former boxing great, Bobby Moore, joined a trio ring champions at the recent Indiana Black Expo celebration in Indianapolis. Moore said he was blessed to meet and have his picture taken with three ring legends: Eva Jones Young, a 12-time world karate champion and three-times women’s world boxing champion; Marvin Johnson, three-time light heavyweight champion of the world, and Sugar Ray Seals, 1972 Olympic Gold medalist in boxing.

Ironically, Moore said he got the meet in greet with Johnson who picked him out of the crowd saying, “You look like a boxer.” Moore has been a long-time friend of Seals and met Jones Young initially through Seals.
