Rising heavyweight Jerry Cooney KOs former champ Ken Norton in the 1st round at Madison Square Garden.

It was Norton’s last fight as a professional

Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USA L TKO 1 10

time: 0:54 | referee: Tony Perez | judge: Harold Lederman | judge: Tony Castellano

Last night, junior middleweight James Kirkland (32-2, 28 KOs) fought without his long time trainer Ann Wolfe in his 3rd round knockout loss to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) at the Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.

Kirkland is unbeaten at 32-0 when trained by Wolfe, and his two defeats, both knockout losses, have come when he’s been with other trainers. Wolfe was at last night’s Canelo-Kirkland fight, and she feels that it would have been a much different story if she’d been working Kirkland’s corner for that fight. She says she knows how to bring the dog out of Kirkland
