Kenneth Howard Norton Sr. (August 9, 1943 - September 18, 2013), best known as Ken Norton, was an American professional boxer. He was the WBC world heavyweight champion from 1977 to 1978 and is best known for his trilogy with Muhammad Ali, in which he defeated Ali in their first bout by split decision over twelve rounds in March 1973. Their rematch also ended in a split decision, this time in favour of Ali. The third fight was won by Ali, but many observers thought Norton had won. He also is known for his slugfest with Larry Holmes in June 1978. Although he suffered quick knockout defeats to power punchers George Foreman, Earnie Shavers and Gerry Cooney, Norton always matched up well against top boxers and often gave opponents such as Ali, Jimmy Young and Holmes much trouble with his unorthodox style. In 1992, Norton was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. He died of stroke complications at a care facility in Henderson, Nevada on September 18, 2013 at the age of 70.
 
Early Years
Norton was an outstanding athlete at Jacksonville High School, He was a member of the state championship football team and was selected to the all-state team on defense as a senior in 1960. His track coach entered him in eight events, and Norton placed first in seven of them. As a result, the "Ken Norton Rule," which limits participation of an athlete to a maximum of four track and field events, was instituted in Illinois high school sports. After graduating from high school, Norton went to Northeast Missouri State University (now Truman State University) on a football scholarship and studied elementary education. In an interview with ESPN Fitness Magazine in 1985, Norton said that he would have become a teacher or a policeman if he had not taken up boxing.
 
Boxing career
Norton started boxing when he was in the United States Marine Corps from 1963 to 1967, compiling a 24-2 record en route to three All-Marine Heavyweight titles. In time, Ken became the best boxer to ever fight for the Marines, and was awarded the North Carolina AAU Golden Gloves, International AAU and Pan American titles. following the National AAU finals in 1967, he turned professional.
 
Norton built up a steady string of wins, some against journeyman fighters and others over fringe contenders like the giant Jack O'Halloran. He was learning and improving. But he suffered a surprise defeat, ironically just after The Ring magazine had profiled him as a prospect, at the hands of heavy hitting Venezuelan boxer Jose Luis Garcia in 1970. It was justifiably Garcia's career peak.
 
Versus Ali, first and second fight
'Name' opponents were elusive in Norton's early career. His first big break came with a clear win over respected contender Henry Clark. This helped get him his world recognition break when Ali agreed to a match. Joe Frazier, who's sparred with Norton, presciently said of Ali, "He'll have plenty of trouble!" Though both were top boxers in the mid 1970s, Norton and Frazier never fought each other in part because they shared the same trainer, Eddie Futch, and also that they were friends.
 
For the first match, on March 31, 1973, Muhammad Ali entered the ring at the San Diego sports Arena wearing a robe given to him by Elvis Presley as a 5-1 favorite versus Ken Norton, then rated a number 6 world contender in a bout televised by ABC's Wide World of Sports. Norton won a 12 round split decision over Ali in his adopted hometown of San Diego to win the NABF heavyweight title. In the bout, Norton broke Ali's jaw (he maintains in round eleven, though Angelo Dundee said it was earlier), leading to only the second defeat in his career. (Ali's only previous loss was to Joe Frazier, and Ali would later go on to defeat George Foreman to regain the heavyweight tile in 1974.)
 
Almost six months later at The Forum in Inglewood, California, on September 10, 1973, Ali avenged the Norton loss but only after he got the return by a split decision. Norton weighted in at 205 lbs (5 pounds lighter than his first match with Ali) and boxing scribes discussed that his preparation was too intense and that perhaps he had overtrained. There were wome furious exchanges in this hard fought battle.
