About this title

Synopsis:

The 1970s ushered in boxings greatest class of heavyweight fighters. The fight game has never before or since seen such a talented and charismatic group. Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Larry Holmes, and Ken Norton have been hailed as Champions Forever, as the world heavyweight title was passed among them throughout the decade. On March 31, 1973, Norton broke Alis jaw in the process of winning a 12-round decision over The Greatest. Going the Distance will trace the incredible path of Nortons life, from Jacksonville, Illinois, to Northeast Missouri State University, to the U.S. Marines, to his historic bout with Ali in San Diego, California, and on to his life today. The book includes exclusive personal photos from Nortons collection, as well as a chronology of Nortons 49 professional fights. Foreword by Joe Frazier 6 x 9 Eight-page photo insert

About the Author:

Norton writes candidly about his experiences in the movie industry; his sometimes strained relationship with son Ken Jr., a member of three Super Bowl-winning teams; and the agonizing road to recovery after a near-fatal car crash in 1986, where medical experts gave him little chance of surviving. Ken Norton has proved the doubters wrong his entire life, and Going the Distance will serve as motivation to anyone who has ever been told they cannot achieve their dreams.

Marshall Terrill has been a featured writer for Sports Arizona Magazine since 1997. His work has also been featured in several boxing publications, including The Ring, KO, The USA Boxing News, and International Boxing Digest. Ken Norton: Going the Distance is his fourth book.

Mike Fitzgerald is a boxing historian who has contributed articles to Sports Arizona Magazine. This is his first book. Fitzgerald is currently working on a biography of Archie Moore.
