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.
Good post.

Jerry Quarry II 1972
Ken Norton II 1973
Joe Frazier II 1974
George Foreman 1974

The best seventies incarnation of Ali.
