Breaking news as it is being reported boxing legend Ken Norton has died. He was 70.

Boxing legend Ken Norton fought 3 times against Muhammad Ali. He died in Las Vegas today reports tmz.box_a_norton-ali01jr_576


Norton had been in failing health for several years after a series of strokes.

Norton defeated Ali — breaking his jaw in the process — during their first non-title fight in 1973. They faced each other in the ring two more times … with Ali winning both.

Their last battle was the 1976 classic held in Yankee Stadium.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Norton family.
