(AP Photo/File) by Tim DahlbergAP Boxing Writer LAS VEGAS (AP) — One point on one card, a couple of points on some others. Ken Norton fought the greats, but the decisions he needed to be great never seemed to go his way. He busted Muhammad Ali’s jaw to hand him only his second defeat. But he lost two narrow decisions to Ali the next two times they’d meet, including their final 1976 fight at Yankee Stadium. And after he lost by just one point to Larry Holmes in their 1978 heavyweight title fight, Norton’s career was all but over. “Kenny was a good, good fighter. He beat a lot of guys,” said Ed Schuyler Jr., who covered many of Norton’s fights for The Associated Press. “He gave Ali fits because Ali let him fight coming forward instead of making him back up.”
