Re: why did holmes and norton never have a rematch?
Shavers-Norton could have played out very differently had Ken got his big shots in first. Okay,Norton was n't a puncher in Earnie's or George Foreman's mould but he still hit harder than Jerry Quarry,for example,who stopped Shavers. If this had come to pass,we'd have had Holmes-Norton II in September of that year. I see Holmes taking a fairly clear decision. Perhaps 9 - 6 in rounds.
