Ken Norton RIP

Ken Norton has passed away at the age of 70 having been in poor health after a number of strokes. Made his breakthrough when beating Muhammed Ali in 1973 having broken Ali's jaw in the first round. Went on to become a World Champion in 1977 and fought some brutal battles with all the top heavyweights of the time. A fantastic left hook, but lost the title to Larry Holmes the following year in one of the first fights I really remember. Have watched it back a few times...two absolute warriors. Stunning.

Rest in Peace Kenny.
