Re: Muhammad Ali and PEDs
Referee discretion is absolutely sacred.
No commission anywhere with a storied boxing history would retroactively turn a fight into a DQ.
An NC is what happens when PEDS are used. Period.
And an NC doesn't erase the memory of what happened in the fight. W or NC, Ali got up from a heavy KD and tore Cooper's face to pieces. He then did it again in the rematch.
He's the better man h2h, and his legacy doesn't suffer. Doesn't matter much.
