May 9, 1961: Unfortunately for the ladies -- and probably Alejandro Lavorante too -- this Latin lover will be doing his tango with the No. 3 heavyweight of the world, Zora Folley, Thursday night at the Olympic. This is a pretty drastic undertaking for a young fellow who has only had a baker's dozen fights and a few of us were questioning the wisdom of Alejandro's manager, Pinky George, in making the match. Career-wise, it would seem simpler just to drop Alejandro in front of a moving train.
