Default Re: Ken Norton -vs- Floyd Patterson

Ali was totally unprepared for 1st Norton fight, he almost didn't train at all (as Norton was supposed to be an easy fight for him, another bum of the month club fight). The second fight, people who knew Ali well at the time already said he was no longer the fighter he was, he was shot. Holyfield was coming off a close fight with Lennox Lewis, and went on to beat Hasim Rahman afterwards.
Ali a better fighter? You gotta be kidding.
