Default Re: Referee - Tony Perez 'I Should Have DQ'd Muhammad Ali'

I don't think it's just holding that is a problem with Ali's performance, it's the type of holding he employed.
He wasn't tying Frazier up like many fights would, ie. clinching Frazier's arms, he was using a blatant neck hold, something akin to wrestling move.
Frank Bruno did same thing to Tyson and was docked a point before the mid-way mark of the 1st round.

Anyway, it is what it is. The referee ignored the fouling and the rest is history.
