Former Heavyweight Champ and Jacksonville Native Ken Norton Passes Away


Former heavyweight champ, and Jacksonville native, Ken Norton has died.

 

Norton started as a gifted athlete at Jacksonville High School but achieved international fame when he defeated Muhammad Ali in a non-title fight in 1973.

 

Ali won two rematches, including a controversial bout that many in attendance thought Norton had actually won.

 

Norton died Wednesday in Las Vegas at the age of 70.
