This is so ****ed up in a way, considering the quality of fighter Ken Norton actually was.


But no... Just No.

It's a shame people questioning Norton's punch resistance in this thread. He had a good chin, just not an elite chin and couldn't handle those with elite power (Foreman, Shavers).

I'll follow the consensus and pick Tyson within 2

As much as I admired Ken,I can only see an early Tyson victory here. Styles maketh the fight,and Tyson's was all wrong for Norton. Ken was a far tougher opponent for Muhammad Ali than Tyson would have been,imo,but Mike would blitz Ken every day of the week.

I agree, but the weight of this comment has lost a bit with your avatarlessness. The committee has decided that you should fix this matter, promptly. Quite promptly.

Tyson blasts Norton out of there early. Norton's track record against punchers is not so good.

Tyson by KO inside of 7. I'm thinking 5th round to be honest.
