Re: Muhammad Ali's management VERY SMART
I dont think Futch is discrediting Ali's record, he's just crediting Ali's managers for not making too many mistakes.
He goes on to say "The biggest mistake they made was with Ken Norton".
Almost all great fighters had shrewd managers. Sure, they beat tough fighters, and good versions of them. But it would be foolish to put your fighter in with men at the absolute top of their game, fight after fight, no matter how great your fighter is.
