Former heavyweight boxing champ Ken Norton (pictured above), who in 1973 broke the jaw of legendary boxing king Muhammad Ali during a bout, is reportedly hospitalized from complications of a stroke, reports Fight News.
Earlier stories reported that he suffered a heart attack–which is not accurate.
Norton, 69, reportedly got an infection while in a rehab facility as he was recovering from a stroke suffered last August. As a World Boxing Hall of Fame inductee and high-ranking member of the 70′s golden era of boxing, Norton finished his exemplary career with a record of 42-7-1 and held the title in 1978. He lost it that same year to another heavyweight boxing stud, Larry Holmes.
