Fight Photo: Muhammad Ali and Ken Norton celebrating Thanksgiving together

28 Nov

Iceman John Scully – Hartford

“With the recent passing of [Joe] Frazier and [Ron] Lyle I thought this photo was right on time. Thanksgiving, 2011 (from Hana Ali’s collection),” wrote friend of On The Beak, Iceman John Scully in an email to editor Alan Dawson. Pictured below are Muhammad Ali (left), who endured one of boxing’s most famous fistic trilogies with Frazier as well as an 11th round teekayo win over Lyle, and Ken Norton (right), who went 1-2, 0ko with Ali in three bruising bouts.
