People especially wanted to see Ali face Norton again. Norton beat Young in an eliminator and was scheduled to get another shot.
Yes, people wanted to see a 4th fight.
Ali fought Leon Spinks instead.
As we know only too well, only 3 judges views carry any weight in boxing, and two of them had Ali a comfortable winner against Young, and the other also scored it for Ali.

'People' always want to see any number of different fights, but Ali and Norton did go at it 3 times. As I said earlier, I thought Norton should have got the nod 2/1 in their rubber.
