That's all I needed. Try again,Tunney Light. Nat Fleischer said a lot of silly things. Such as "Frazier is not a hard puncher" among other things lol. More important, how many times did Fleischer step in the ring with Ali, Foreman, or Holmes? Or any professional fighter?I'll take Ken Norton's word over a man that's been dead for how long now?
By the way one last little thing. I`m fairly sure that Nat Fleischer ``stepped into the ring``with nearly every one of the fighters you mention, although perhaps not Holmes. He said that he`d been at ringside for every top fighter beginning with Jeffries in 1903, and ending in 1972 when he unfortunately died. So it`s not a stretch to assume that he also went into the ring at the end of each fight, to get a quote.

Whadda ya tink...
