    HEAVYWEIGHT: Ken Norton VS……? Fans,

    With the passing of Norton, it is a sad day for American Boxing. RIP Mr. Norton.

    …TWO QUESTIONS, ….

    Joe Frazier never fought Frazier on account of sharing the same trainer, ….

    Q 1. Who would have won a 15 round bout: Frazier VS. Norton?

    Ken Norton fought Muhammad Ali 3 times, with a record of 1 win – 2 losses. His lone win coming in a 12 round split decision whereby he broke Ali’s jaw (!) in the bout.

    Q 2. Who would have won a 15 round bout IF Norton had fought him when he was the Then-Named-Cassius Clay?

    ~ same result?

    ~ or a faster version of Then-Named-Clay would have effected the outcome?

    Would You Ever Have Guessed Muhammad Ali Would Out Lived Both Joe Frazier And Ken Norton? Muhammad ali is the one that’s been through the most by ducking the draft and doing 4 years of solitary confinement ,then returning to boxing and getting Parkinson’s way back in the 80’s and he STILL out lives both Frazier and Norton.

  • Jesus says:

    Who Is Greater; Mike Tyson Or Larry Holmes? Personally i think Holmes defeated better competition. He also had far more title defenses as the universally recognized heavyweight champion. Tyson had 6, Holmes had 21.
    Sure; Tyson beat Holmes, but during the fight Holmes wasn’t even the champion, he was a senior citizen who had just come out of retirement. Also; reportedly Holmes didn’t properly train for the fight.
    Youngblood,
    And Kevin Mcbride whopped Tyson, so is McBride the greatest?
    McBride whopped Tyson who whopped Holmes who whopped Ali thus McBride is the greatest not Ali LOL

      This is a great question. Mike Tyson is more popular than Larry Holmes, however, boxing isn’t about popularity. Here is a brief rundown through each fighter.

      Larry Holmes
      Wins: 69
      Losses: 6
      Draws: 0
      KOs: 44
      Notable wins: Earnie Shavers, Ken Norton, Mike Weaver, Muhammad Ali, Trevor Berbick, Leon Spinks, and Gerry Cooney.

      Mike Tyson
      Wins: 50
      Losses: 6
      Draws: 0
      KOs: 44
      Notable wins: Trevor Berbick, Pinklon Thomas, Larry Holmes, Michael Spinks, Tony Tubbs, Frank Bruno, and Donavan Ruddock.

      Like you said, Mike Tyson had 6 title defenses while Larry Holmes had 21.

      Although Mike Tyson defeated Larry Holmes, I believe that Holmes was not quite at his best. He was coming off those two close losses to Michael Spinks, and after that, hadn’t been in the ring for 2 years. He had a lot of ring rust.

      Holmes is a top 5 Heavyweight, while Tyson is barely a top 10 to some. Tyson did become the youngest champion and undisputed champion as well, but Holmes was greater.

      Hands down, Larry Holmes.
