Earnie was too lovable. After he shaved his head, he looked like Curley Neal of the Harlem Globetrotters. Devoted to his eight daughters, and so close to his loyal trainer Frank Luca, he couldn't intimidate anybody with his persona if he tried, not with that sweet southern accent. The problem came when the bell rang, and he actually connected on the other guy. That's when Norton started shitting bricks, but by then it was too late.
