If Shavers could stop Norton then a harder puncher and much better finisher in Tyson would obliterate him.

Don't forget prime Tyson was also much quicker, quicker on the feet, heavier, better handspeed, better stamina, better chin.

Ken had serious trouble with big punchers.

Mike takes this.

Tyson would destroy Norton in the first round. Norton was just brilliant vs Ali, but against Tyson he would be slaughtered.

i agree. stylistically this is a ****ing nightmare for norton. his chin is underrated at times but this fight is all wrong for him

Did I miss something Ken Norton did to deserve this? I take some time off from the classic forum and all I see upon my return are threads designed by people who must clearly hate Ken Norton because they keep putting him in with punchers. What kind of sick joke is this?

Why not something a little more reasonable from a styles matchup, like Norton vs Holyfield, Norton vs Byrd, or Norton vs Zuri Lawrence?
