Teddy Brenner and Madison Square Garden,


A) Wanted Muhammad Ali to defeat Joe Frazier on January 28, 1974

B) They were hoping (praying) that Ken Norton would defeat George Foreman in
their March 1974 Heavyweight Championhsip Bout.

C) Madison Square Garden was planning on having Muhammad Ali fight the 'new'
Champion Ken Norton in October 1974, and in Madison Square Garden.

Hence, Muhammad Ali 'must win'.

Definitely an aroma of bullshit about this,Pepe
