Default Re: Muhammad Ali 1973/74

I must admit i always felt that Ali circa Quarry 2nd combined the near as damn it speed of his first reign with the added strengh of full maturity - and good hands which effected him later down the road, the problem was it was a capability to perform at this level was rarely shown during this Pre-Norton "Roadshow Period"
Ali was bored for the most part but did show Flashes of this reserve capability in selected rounds of fights...Quarry 2nd and a couple of rounds of Patterson "Hinted" at this higher capability, I think Norton would certainly of noticed the difference in this more focused Ali..with Good Hands.
