Former Heavyweight Boxer Ken Norton Sr. Passes Away at 70

Nortonali_crop_north

Ken Norton Sr., an International Boxing Hall of Famer who is recognized by pundits as one of the greatest heavyweights in the sport’s history, died Wednesday after a long battle with congestive heart failure.

He was 70 years old.

Norton, whose professional boxing career spanned three decades, died at an Arizona hospital where he had been undergoing rehabilitation due to complications stemming from a stroke, according to the Los Angeles Times’ Claire Noland. Norton had previously overcome two strokes, a heart attack, quadruple bypass surgery and prostate cancer.

Upon hearing of Norton’s passing, many in the sports community reached out to offer their condolences:

The former heavyweight champ is perhaps best known by boxing fans for his trilogy of fights against Muhammad Ali in 1973 and 1976. In the first bout between the two men, held at the San Diego Sports Arena, Norton shocked the world by defeating Ali in a split-decision and breaking his jaw in the process.

Ali would get revenge with controversial victories in their next two fights—one later in 1973 and the other in 1976—but Norton’s victory over Ali in their first fight made him a star. He parlayed that notoriety into a fight against George Foreman in 1974, and a title win over Jerry Quarry in 1975 when Ali had vacated the strap.

 

Though Norton would lose the belt back to Ali in 1976, he would be awarded the WBC championship a year later. Larry Holmes defeated a declining Norton in 1978, ending a championship run that had lasted parts of five years.

Inside the sport of boxing, Norton is well-known for popularizing the cross-armed defense. Rarely seen before Norton employed the tactic to success early in his career—most notably against Ali—multiple other heavyweights began adopting it.

Norton, though, had perfected the craft. Where other fighters who used cross-armed protection often struggled with counterpunching, Norton’s hands were quick enough that he rarely had that problem. He finished with a career record of 42-7-1 with 33 knockout victories. His last fight came in 1981, when he was knocked out by Gerry Cooney at Madison Square Garden.

After Norton’s boxing career, he worked in the entertainment industry as an actor and commentator. He appeared in television shows like The A-Team and Knight Rider during the 1980s.

Norton is survived by his two sons, one of which is former NFL linebacker Ken Norton Jr., who won three Super Bowls over his 13-year career with the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. Norton Jr. is currently the linebackers coach for the Seattle Seahawks.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Canelo Alvarez gives boxing judge C.J. Ross a black eye

Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s masterful win over Canelo Alvarez is almost ruined by  judge C.J. Ross.

It was a near flawless effort, in and out of the ring.

Floyd  Mayweather Jr. put forth a virtuoso performance against the less experienced  Saul (Canelo) Alvarez on Saturday, hitting and not getting hit. But it wasn’t  just Mayweather’s treatment of Alvarez that was so notable. Golden Boy  Promotions orchestrated one of the more ambitious and successful advertising  campaigns for the fight, giving fans a hint of what the future of the sport  could one day hold.

But just as boxing took a step forward, it was dragged back into its murky  past when the judge’s scorecards were announced on Saturday at the MGM Grand.  Only two of the three judges acknowledged Mayweather’s dominance, with C.J.  Ross, a scorer with a checkered past, the lone dissenter.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Justin  Bieber can’t believe what they’re hearing when C.J. Ross’ scorecard is  announced.

Ross scored the fight a draw at 114-114, deciding that Mayweather, 36, had  only won six of the 12 rounds. The other two judges scored it for Mayweather:  116-112 (Dave Moretti) and 117-111 (Craig Metcalfe), giving the Pound-for-Pound  King a majority decision victory. When Mayweather (45-0, 26 knockouts) heard the  verdict in the ring, he thought someone was pulling his leg.

Even Justin Bieber, who walked Mayweather to the ring beforehand, looked  upset. Ross scored four of the final five rounds for Alvarez.

“I thought it was a joke,” Mayweather told an ESPN television reporter  shortly after the bout. Earlier in the ring he said: “I’m not in control of the  judges. I’m a little in shock but everything is a learning experience.”

Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer, who promotes Alvarez, called Ross’  scorecard a “disgrace.”

“She hurt the game,” said Floyd Mayweather Sr., the father and trainer for  Floyd Jr. “For the biggest fight in the world in the history of boxing- you know  what everyone is saying? Boxing is crooked. It’s crooked.”

On a night when the public was finally turning its attention to a sport that  has mostly lived on the margins, fans got a taste of why so many have turned  their backs on it in recent years: because of the head-scratching decisions by  either corrupt or incompetent judges that continue to mar big fights.

“The judge C.J. Ross should be investigated had some money on the fight”  Nets point guard Deron Williams posted on his Twitter account.

Many wondered aloud how Ross got the assignment to judge the biggest fight  of the year. Ross is the same judge that awarded a controversial split decision  victory to Timothy Bradley against Manny Pacquiao last year when most observers  thought Pacquiao did enough to win. In most sports, it’s the best officials who  get to referee the most important events, based on their previous performances.  But that doesn’t always happen in boxing, said Showtime boxing chief, Stephen  Espinoza. No one from the Nevada State Athletic Commission was immediately  available for comment after the fight.

“That’s one area where the sport really needs to improve,” Espinoza said of  the judging. “Other major sports such as the NFL, such as in college basketball  use their best officials for their biggest events. And I think that’s something  that boxing should incorporate and I really don’t see that being taken into  account. We dodged a bullet in a sense because in a closer fight, you’d hate for  [Ross’ scorecard]to be the deciding factor.”

Schaefer suggested the Nevada commission use the money it made on the fight  on seminars to better educate judges. The fight set an all-time live gate record  of $20,003,150 on Saturday.

“The Nevada commission made a lot of money tonight,” Schaefer said  afterward. “I’m sure they can pay for some educational seminars for some of the  officials. I would call that putting the money to good use. I respect the  commission. But they’re going to have to live with their mistakes.”
