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.

Mayweather’s $41million dollar win – biggest purse in boxing history

Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather stretched his unbeaten string to 45 straight fights with a 12-round majority decision over Mexican champ Saul Alvarez on Saturday.

The 36-year-old, who earned the biggest purse in boxing history at $41-million, managed to win the showdown between the two undefeated fighters and wrest Alvarez’s World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association super welterweight belts.

“It is about skills,” Mayweather said. “I came out tonight and showed my skills.

“I just took my time and took the opportunities when I got them.  I can’t say this is my best performance.”

Mayweather fought a brilliant tactical fight against the younger and stronger Alvarez in front of the crowd of 16 746 at the MGM Grand Hotel’s Grand Garden Arena.

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

Judge CJ Ross surprisingly scored it a draw, 114-114, while Craig Metcalfe had it 117-111 and Dave Moretti scored it 116-112 in favour of Mayweather.

Prison release “I’m not in control of what the judges do,” Mayweather scoffed. “I am in shock [by] whoever had it even.”

This was just the second fight for Mayweather since he was 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, who moved down in weight for the showdown.

The seventh was one of Mayweather’s best rounds as he landed several combination punches early before backing Alvarez up into a corner and hitting him with a right uppercut that snapped the Mexican’s head back.

Mayweather came into the fight at 150 pounds, just a couple pounds lighter than he was at Friday’s weigh in.

Alvarez was first to step into the ring, followed by Mayweather, who walked slowly into the sold-out arena flanked by rap artist Lil Wayne and Canadian teen heartthrob Justin Bieber.

The Mexican fighter entered the fight at 165, 13 pounds heavier than he was at Friday’s weigh in.

Alvarez, who turned pro at age of 15 in 2005, suffered the first loss of his career.

“Obviously I didn’t want to leave with a loss,” said Alvarez, who dropped to 42-1-1. “It happens and it hurts.”

Olympic style fight  Alvarez said he thought Mayweather fought an Olympic style fight by impressing the judges with the volume of punches he landed not the quality.

“He is very fast and accurate. His punches weren’t that strong but he is making points and very fast,” Alvarez said.

Mayweather connected on three times as many jabs (139-44) as Alvarez and landed almost double the number of total punches, 232-117.

This was the second 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 by fighting in May and September.

Some questioned why Mayweather would choose to fight Alvarez instead of accepting even more money to fight Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao, who Mayweather has been accused of dodging.

Mayweather said that Pacquiao is no longer on his radar.

‘I am not thinking about Manny Pacquiao’ ​“I want to take my promotion to another level. I am not thinking about Manny Pacquiao,” Mayweather said.

On the undercard, Danny Garcia kept his World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association super lightweight titles with a unanimous decision over challenger Lucas Matthysses.

Garcia knocked Matthysses down in the 11th round and then the two went toe-to-toe in the final seconds of the 12-round showdown with both looking to end the bout with a knockout.

“We had a game plan and we stuck to it,” Garcia said. “I stood focused and disciplined.

“I faced adversity before and he hadn’t. I knew I would get this win.”

Garcia improved to 27-0 but Argentina’s Matthysses made him work for it as he sent Garcia’s mouthpiece flying with a hard right hand in the 11th.

Carlos Molina also won the International Boxing Federation’s junior middleweight title with a split-decision victory over Ishe Smith. – AFP

Floyd Mayweather is just one of many popular boxers who have emerged from the sport. Through various routes—some through the ring, some outside it or a combination of both—these boxers connect with the people.

Whether they make people hate them or love them dearly, they make people care about what they do and how they do it and that is what matters most.
