The Loch Ness Monster smiles for the camera -- sort of, Ellis Island closes, actor William Holden passes away, and Madonna releases "Like a Virgin," all on this day.

1967: Boxer Michael Moorer (left), one of only four men to win one or more versions of the world heavyweight championship on three separate occasions, is born in Brooklyn, New York. A former world light heavyweight champion, Moorer is one of only three men to have won world titles at both light heavyweight and heavyweight. He first won the Lineal, IBF and WBA title belts by beating Evander Holyfield on April 22, 1994, before losing the belts, and his undefeated record, to 45-year-old George Foreman (right) on Nov. 5, 1994. He retired in 2008 with a career record of 52-4-1.
