I think the damage Foreman inflicted on Ali is understated. He hurt Ali alright, particularly to the body, but Ali took it well.
Shavers landed flush to the jaw a number of times, but again Ali stood firm.
Norton stylistically was a nightmare for Ali, and I though Norton took it 2/1 in their matches.
