Ken Norton

  1. Carl
 Weathers, Rocky,  1976.     “Carl  was an afterthought,” said Sylvester Stallone. “when Ken fell out. ” Sly didn’t say why… Ken fell, because at 230 pounds, the real boxer (he broke Muhammad Ali’s jaw in 1973) was just so hefty he would have turned his opponent  into Sly The Giant Killer… and the script was unbelievable enough to start with!   Two years later, Norton was heavyweight champ, World Boxing Council style.
