PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Ken Norton died"
Boxing used to be a big time sport, especially heavy weight boxing, before unbelievably venal, greedy, sociopathic promoters (Don King lead the pack) killed it. And Ken Norton was one of the best.

Ken Norton handed Muhammad Ali his second career defeat in their first meeting. Then he officially lost two subsequent but very close matches that could have gone either way. In his day, he was a match for Ali, more so (IMO) than Joe Frazier.

He was hospitalized before he died, and I can only speculate that he may have been one more victim of pugilistic brain damage.

He was one of the greats.

Actually, I thought the second Ali-Norton fight was clearly Ali's, despite the scorecards showing it close, and the third was clearly Norton's, despite the scorecards giving it to Ali.

Who ever thought that Ali would be the last boxer alive from his generation? Yet both Frazier and Norton are gone.
