I watched that fight back in the day and probably 30x since then. It was a blowout, Ken won at least 10 rounds.

Was at ringside watching the fight in 76 and scored it 8-7 for Norton. Since that time have watched it countless times and typically score it for Ali. Very close hard to score fight.

9-6 Norton. Thought it was easier to argue a clear Norton victory than a close Ali victory.

norton won 10 rounds, i think, but he was not beating up champ so he didn't deserve title IMO.

winning a majority of the rounds means you don't deserve the title?

Probably 9-6 for Kenny Norton...Ali won that fight because of who he was...not for what he did in the ring that night. One of the N.Y. papers said:'If Ali won the fight last night...then the Japanese won WWII"...
