He was the second man to beat Muhammad Ali, breaking Ali's jaw and sending him to the hospital in their 1973 heavyweight fight.

Ken Norton frustrated Ali three times in all, including their final bout at Yankee Stadium where he was sure he had beaten him once again.

Norton, who died Wednesday at the age of 70, lost that fight for the heavyweight title.

Man, I was just watching an old Phil Donahue show that has Frazer, Ken, Ali, and Holmes on. Then when Ali died, I thought about that show and asked who would be next. The only two left of that magic era is Holmes, and Forman. Man, I just knew he was going to be one of man to pay his respect to Ali....

When Ali died, Forman said that him, Ali, and Frazer was one guy, and the best part of him is gone. I wasn't that much up on Norton and Holmes. But I grew up watching Frazer, Ali, And Forman.

Thank you again brutha Shaka for posting this.

Peace!

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
