Former boxing champ Ken Norton dies at 70

Former boxing champion Ken Norton, considered one of the greatest heavyweights of his era, died on Wednesday of a heart attack, his manager said. He was 70.

The fighter was best known for beating Muhammad Ali in 1973, breaking the Hall of Famer's jaw in the process.

Norton passed away Wednesday afternoon at an Arizona care facility.

Norton, who suffered a stroke last year, ended his brilliant career with a record of 42 wins, seven losses, one draw and 33 knockouts.AFP
