This bout was broadcast in primetime on NBC. The commentators were Dick Enberg, Larry Merchant and Ken Norton, the #1 ranked heavyweight contender. NBC arranged to flash the official scoring on the screen after every round. Such an obvious edge was not lost on Angelo Dundee, Alis trainer, who posted Baltimore matchmaker Eddie Hrica in the champions dressing quarters to watch the TV set there and relay the numbers after each round. And so, after 12 rounds, Dundee knew the only way Shavers could beat his man was by a knockout.
