    Ken Norton, who defeated Muhammad Ali, dies at age 70



    Norton didn't begin boxing until being introduced to the sport while serving in the Marines Corps between 1963 and 1967. There, he soon flashed his talent in the ring en route to becoming a three-time All-Marine Heavyweight Champion, according to the Marine Corps Sports Hall of Fame, which inducted Norton into its 2004 class. He also earned a North Carolina Golden Gloves, International AAU and Pan American titles while still in the service.

    That Ali-Norton I fight was on ABC Wide World of Sports on a Saturday afternoon. Imagine how that fight was free and it was so great a fight. Today you have to pay 70 Bucks to see some bums as champs.

    The Top 10 heavyweights back then were brutal:

    Ali
    Norton
    Foreman
    Frazier
    Holmes
    Weaver - USMC
    Spinks - USMC
    Shavers
    Jimmy Young
    Cooney
    Bobick
    Lyle

    Anyone of those guys would be champ today

    Pretty good list, but I think the only one who might have been able to last 15 rounds with Mr. Joe Lewis in his prime would have been Clay.

    You could add Pinklon Thomas if I spelled it right to that list also, Semper Fidelis.
