Ken Norton net worth: Ken Norton was a retired professional boxer who has a net worth of $5 million dollars. Ken Norton was born in Jacksonville, Illinois, and excelled in athletics while in high school. He was an All-State selection in football, and competed in eight different track and field events his senior year, taking 1st in seven of them. The "Ken Norton Rule", was subsequently implemented for all Illinois track and field teams. It limited the number of track and field events in which a student athlete could participate to four. He started boxing in the early 60s while he was in the United States Marine Corp, and went on to win three All-Marine Heavyweight titles. He turned professional after completing his service in 1967. He went on to fight 50 bouts over the course of his professional career, winning 42 of them. 33 of his wins were via knockout. He is most widely remembered for being one of only two boxers to defeat Muhammad Ali during his prime. He broke Ali's jaw in the 12th round of their fight in March 1973. They fought twice more. He lost both fights, though the third bout is still widely debated. He passed away September 18, 2013.
Kenneth Howard Norton Sr. (August 9, 1943 ??? September 18, 2013) was an American heavyweight boxer and WBC world Heavyweight Champion. He was best known for his 12-round victory over Muhammad Ali, when he famously broke Ali's jaw, on March 31, 1973, becoming only the second man to defeat a peak Ali as a professional (after Joe Frazier, who won a 15-round unanimous decision against Ali on March 8, 1971).
He and Ali would fight twice more, with Ali officially winning narrowly both return bouts, although many felt Norton truly deserved their third fight. Norton was awarded the WBC title (by virtue of his win over Jimmy Young in a 1977 title elimination bout) when Leon Spinks declined a mandated title defense against Norton, the number one contender. However, Norton lost it in his first defense on a split decision by 1 point to Larry Holmes in a great contest (Holmes-Norton is ranked as the 10th-greatest heavyweight fight of all time by Monte D. Cox, a member of the International Boxing Research Organization).
Norton was an outstanding athlete at Jacksonville High School. He was a member of the state championship football team and was selected to the all-state team on defense as a senior in 1960. His track coach entered him in eight events, and Norton placed first in seven of them. As a result, the "Ken Norton Rule," which limits participation of an athlete to a maximum of four track and field events, was instituted in Illinois high school sports. After graduating from high school, Norton went to Northeast Missouri State University (now Truman State University) on a football scholarship and studied elementary education.
Norton started boxing when he was in the United States Marine Corps from 1963 to 1967, compiling a 24-2 record en route to three All-Marine Heavyweight titles. Following the National AAU finals in 1967, he turned professional.
Norton built up a steady string of wins, some against journeyman fighters and others over fringe contenders like the
