The announcement that one of the legends of the heavyweight division, Ken Norton, had passed away, saddened us all.

But, in the aftermath of the announcement, two great tributes have come forth from two other legends of the division, both of which show you just how revered Ken was amongst the boxing fraternity.

The first, from Mike Tyson simply reads,

?Ken was nice to me even when I was an amateur. He treated me like I was somebody. Remarkable man.?

Whilst the second, from George Foreman reads,

?They called us all handsome. Muhammed they called pretty. But the fairest of them all Ken Norton.?

Two superb sentiments to a man who had a heart of gold but also who was able to live with the best in the division.
