This is why I’m hot hot..this is why I’m hot hot..have you listened to the Mim’s song..its a wow. You know there are songs which can instantaneously make you feel upbeat, this is one of them. When I think of upbeat, to motivation to aggression, the name that comes to my mind is an epitome of aggression, Cassius clay AKA Muhammad Ali.

 
Muhammad Ali, the king of trash talks, he used it as a bait to make his opponent loose the temperament before the match. Once he shouted to his opponent sonny Liston, ‘you are smelling like a bear’ and vowed to donate him to the zoo after he beats him. He he…just imagine the level of burn in Liston.
 
 
The above image is not of good quality but it’s self-explanatory, we can see that the signature has changed over the years, and its fascinating how the rules of graphology can be tallied with real life events. His career started in 1960 and by the end of 1963, clay has record of 19-0 with 15 knock outs, and in 1964 he was a contender for heavy weight championship title. You can see the roaring confidence in the signature, the open-top ‘a’ tells us about the trash talks, the above and forward ‘i’ dot signifies the super-confidence. In 1965 he was already a heavyweight champion, and along with the bulging confidence (as ‘i’ dot goes more forward) we can find the hint of spirituality in his signature. There are significant upper loops in ‘a’, ‘d’, & ‘h’ with his surname uplifting from the baseline. The raging bull was finally slowing down as his bouts were going till the 15th round and he knew subconsciously his era was ending and that reflected in the signature (78′ sample),the overall upward movement is gone, spiritual confidence is no where as no upper loops are there. Afterwards he tried to recover his image as a boxer but all is gone by then. His 1981 writing shows although he tried to keep superstar image by the large ‘m’ as earlier but no significant loops, overly stressed middle zone tells us that he has got much involved in his day to day family life.

 

The signature comparison provides so much information, that a 1000 words essay can be written out of it, but lets keep it crisp, so that the crunch doesn’t go from the time I write it, to till the time you read it.

 

Here goes another writing sample of Muhammad Ali

If you are aware of meaning of slants in Handwriting, you can understand that this type of slant is not normal for a person like Muhammad Ali, They are almost like a Type-I hand writing. We have already received the hint of his higher involvement in day to day activities from his last signature, along with that when we see the writing style of ‘I’, which is looking like it got slipped and fell into the floor with top round squeezed to nothing, we can understand that at this stage of life he lacked both spiritual and sporting interest, and was emotionally dependent, involved with the woman in his life.

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.

Injured elbow slows down boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather said he dislocated his left elbow in the middle of his majority decision over previously unbeaten Saul Alvarez.

The 36-year-old Mayweather earned a record $41 million purse Saturday for a dominating 12-round victory in which he claimed Alvarez’s World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association super welterweight belts.

“I could have used more combinations down the stretch. I think I dislocated my elbow,” said Mayweather during the post-fight news conference.

Mayweather said that for rounds six and seven he couldn’t use his jab because of the suspected dislocated elbow, although round seven still turned out to be one of his strongest of the fight.

“My arm was hurting, and I wanted to stop using my jab and just paw with it,” Mayweather said.

Doctors were expected to examine the elbow this week.

He used his superior hand speed to keep Alvarez at bay, but Mayweather still only managed to win the fight on two of the three judge’s scorecards.

Judge CJ Ross surprisingly scored it a draw, 114-114. The other two judges, Craig Metcalfe (117-111) and Dave Moretti (116-112) had Mayweather winning in a breeze.

Ross surprised many by giving six rounds to Alvarez. She is also one of two judges who scored a win for Timothy Bradley over Manny Pacquiao last year.

Mayweather criticized Ross after the fight.

“I think it is a woman, and she could be older,” said Mayweather.

Mayweather was fighting for just the second time since being released from prison after serving a sentence for assaulting the mother of his children.

Mayweather gave away 13 years in age and 15 pounds to the younger and stronger Alvarez.

The Mexican fighter tipped the scales at Friday’s weigh in right on the 152-pound catch weight. But by the time he entered the ring, Alvarez had ballooned to 165, 13 pounds heavier than he was at the weigh in. It was also 10 pounds heavier than the weight he had been sparring at in the week leading up to the fight.

The added weight made him look slow and awkward in the ring as he suffered the first loss of his career.

This was the second fight in Mayweather’s six-bout, 30-month contract with Showtime that could pay him more than $200 million.

Saturday’s fight marked the first time since 2007 that he has fought twice in a calendar year, and Mayweather said he plans to repeat that schedule in 2014 and 2015 by fighting in May and September.

Mayweather repeated several times after the fight that he is counting down the months until retirement, and he believes he will stop boxing sometime in 2015.

“I only got 24 months left,” he said.

Boxer Pacquiao calls Mayweather’s bluff

http://platform.twitter.com/widgets/hub.1324331373.html

MANILA, Phillipines, January 12 – Manny Pacquiao on Thursday accepted US rival Floyd Mayweather’s provocative challenge for a showdown of the world’s top pound-for-pound boxers, though sticking points to the mega fight remain.

The unbeaten Mayweather dared the Philippine icon this week on Twitter to “Step up Punk”, attempting to entice Pacquiao into a May 5 bout in Las Vegas, a fight that boxing fans have wanted to see for years.

Mayweather and Pacquiao, 33, previously saw a fight derailed by the US fighter’s demands about blood testing, with both boxers accusing the other of running scared.

“I want to fight him. This is the fight the world wants,” Pacquiao declared at a news conference in the Philippines with his US promoter Bob Arum.

Pacquiao, 54-3 with two draws and 38 knockouts, said if the 34-year-old Mayweather, 42-0 with 26 knockouts, can find a promoter who would give him a guaranteed purse, the fight would be on.

Arum said he favours a showdown in late May and previously told the Los Angeles Times he could secure $40 million more with the construction of a temporary venue in Las Vegas before more than twice as many spectators.

“Mayweather wants a guaranteed purse so what he has to do is get a promoter who can give him the guarantee,” Pacquiao said. “I don’t have problems getting a guarantee because I have a promoter who will give me my guaranteed purse.”

“If he gets a guarantee, then we are going to share the revenue on a 50-50 basis,” Pacquiao added, referring to the money raised from pay-per-view television, gate and broadcast rights.

Arum added: “There is no problem on our part — the problem is on Mayweather’s.

“Mayweather needs somebody on his side that’s going to guarantee his purse. Mayweather has nobody on his side and GBP (Oscar de la Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions) is not going to guarantee his purse.”

Arum insisted that if there was to be no fight in late May against the American then he would move forward with a Pacquiao clash on June 9 against someone else.

He listed a re-match against Mexico’s Juan Manuel Marquez or Puerto Rican southpaw Miguel Cotto, as well as Americans Tim Bradley and Lamont Peterson, as potential alternatives.

Arum had originally said that Mayweather was not on Pacquiao’s hit-list.

Pacquiao, a southpaw, won a majority decision over Marquez in November to keep his World Boxing Organisation welterweight title.

Mayweather, who turns 35 next month, won the World Boxing Council welterweight title with a fourth-round knockout of compatriot Victor Ortiz.

But he is currently awaiting the June 1 start of a 90-day jail sentence on domestic violence charges, further complicating things.
