If you look at the weight of the ATG heavys, you find that a lot of them would now be cruiserweights.
Norton was a good sized heavyweight. If David Haye can be considered a top heavy, you better believe Norton would be far more dangerous. Jmo.

Norton is one of my fav heavyweights from the 70's. Shame he didn't have a good chin. Got decked by Foreman, but was outboxing him before that. Beat Ali all 3 times in my opinion. And Ali wasn't old in '73!

So, what's with this guy here? Is his gimmick that no fighter from the greatest heavyweight era ever is any good?

Norton was a great heavyweight that if he had come around in the 50's or 80's, either before or after Ali, he may have been dominant.
