Mini-Quiz: Muhammad Ali and Bret Favre Used Similar Technique

by Ron Kurtus (revised 3 April 2012)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. How could Ali lean back while other boxers moved forward when punching?

His punches were often flicks of the wrist versus full-power punches

One of his legs was much longer than the other, allowing him to do that

If knocked down, he wouldn't have as far to fall

2. What do football coaches advise concerning copying Favre's throwing style?

Don't throw that way, because it is unorthodox

Learn this style and you will be the next Favre

Do not copy the style because Favre has a patent on it

3. When did Michael Jordan start using the fall-away jump shot?

Shortly after Larry Bird invented the shot

When he got too old to drive in and slam dunk very well


If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Sports Knowledge. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
