    So, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Ken Norton, Ron Lyle and Earnie Shavers aren't KO'ing Ali around this time but lil' Rocky Marciano turns the trick? Exactly how?

    He would do it by pummelling Ali. Pummelling him into submission.

    PS.Lyle, Foreman and Frazier didn't fight '76 Ali. He was a shell of himself after Manila. He couldn't punch anymore, his hands were shot. Timing gone, he didn't have the same drive. He was like a fat man doing a bad Ali impersonation.
