Ken Norton 1973 v James 'Buster' Douglas 1990- With the shape Buster came in at, I have to go with Norton by late stoppage or wide decision.
Ken Norton 1973 v George Foreman 1991- I feel like, if Norton can avoid be caught with the perfect puch he should be able to handle the slower version of George and take a comfortable decision.
Ken Norton 1974 v Bert Cooper 1991- Interesting one...I think Cooper is not legacy wise on par w/ Norton, but on this night would present a tough opponent....but ultimately I think the likely outcome is Norton...But there could be a shocker or some tough moments along the way.
Ken Norton 1974 v Larry Holmes 1992- Well seeing as how close Norton fought Holmes in real life (I scored it for Holmes), I think Holmes would not be able to match him this time around at this stage. Norton clear decision.
Ken Norton 1976 v Riddick Bowe 1992- Bowe stops him within 3-5.
4-1 for me w/ two scary fights w/ George/Cooper along the way.
Evander Holyfield 1990 v Muhammad Ali 1973 (first Norton fight)- Holyfield can beat this version of Ali for my money.
Evander Holyfield 1991 v Muhammad Ali 1973 (second Norton fight)- Again I like Holy
Evander Holyfield 1991 v George Foreman 1974- I like Holy to stop George around 8 or so.
Evander Holyfield 1992 v Muhammad Ali 1976- I like Holy by an even wider margin.
Evander Holyfield 1992 v Larry Holmes 1978- I like Holmes to take a solid decision.
4-1 for me
Just me take.
