When one thinks about heavyweight boxing in the 1970’s, four names inevitably come to mind: Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, and Ken Norton. They were the four horsemen of the apocalypse, the ultimate class of heavyweights, defeating all rivals and establishing their dominance among each other, ultimately with Muhammad Ali coming out on top because he had defeated all of the other three. Foreman would have come in a close second because of his destruction of both Frazier and Norton. Frazier can lay claim over dominating the division in the early 70’s, just as Norton can lay claim over the second half of the decade. After his defeat at the hands of Foreman, who would later retire Frazier in their second encounter, it could be argued that Norton went undefeated until his clash with Holmes.
