Surprised to see no thread had been created in honor of Ken Norton, who has passed away on 18th September. Shame on me for noticing just now.
How will be Norton remembered? How will YOU remember him?

To me he was one of the most entertaining heavyweights ever. Awesome jab and style. Always in shape and I just loved his defense. Gave Ali all he could handle three times and in my opinion, he won twice! Sad to see another legend leave.

RIP

He was the big musclebound guy from the Army that managed to break Ali's jaw.

Still, he couldn't beat him. Hats off to one of the Golden Era champs.

He will be remembered for actually beating Ali 3 times, even though being robbed two of those times, and not being as appreciated in that great era of boxing. RIP.

I don't think he beat Ali 3x, I think the first and third fights he won. He was robbed in the third fight but that second fight was a victory for Ali imo

But he always gave it his all in the ring, and he's one of the greatest heavyweights of that era

Ken "The Jaw Breaker" Norton was a beast. I think he retired Ali. He beat the snot shit out of Ali. His son was a great UCLA football player. Ken Sr. had a great personality and a great fighter.
