Terry Norris aims to defend his title for the 9th time, taking on hard hitting challenger, Troy Waters.

Norris starts well, dropping Waters to take the first round by 2 points.
The challenger may have been dropped in the first round, but he proves to be far from done, as he returns to sender, and drops Norris in round 2, with a great right hand.
Norris, having been dropped, hurt, digs deep, and not only starts to get the better of Waters again, but he also manages to put him on the canvas for the second time in the fight.

After 3 great rounds (at which point, one judge has it even at 27-27, whilst the others have Norris ahead, 27-25, and 29-25), Waters's corner decide they've seen enough, and they stop the fight.

Terry Norris has a 9 minute war, wins it, stops the other guy, and makes the 9th successful defence of his world title.

Awesome fight!

Terry Norris was underrated, great fighter, dangerous, great offensive fighter, great variety, had the gas tank, agility, all the physical attributes, knew how to make his opponent pay, and besides being a smart fighter, his style was gutsy at the same time, as we saw in this fight. Norris hurt Waters in the first round, he wasn't done at that point, but he was buzzed, and Norris didn't let him off the hook. Norris might have gotten slightly careless in round 2, Waters could punch, and he was prepared to fight, and when Norris had gotten maybe slightly complacent, he took a right to the body, which is what I think dropped him, and the right to the head from Waters just followed, but I think although Norris was hurt there (and he was hurt), he wasn't in real trouble, the pain might have spurred him on, made him get his act together, and for the rest of round 2, it looked like Waters was the one who had been dropped, and rather than swinging the fight in his favour, it seemed like Waters had just woken Norris up. Waters showed a lot of toughness and conditioning to get through that third round, that was an absolute beating, he wasn't making Norris miss, he was fighting back, but he wasn't hurting Norris at all at that point, he was just getting beaten up, got dropped again, he almost had the fight beaten out of him, I think his corner did the right thing, saving him from further damage, because he took clean, crushing shot after clean, crushing shot, had Norris punched himself out in round 3 and looked very tired after the round, maybe they could have let Waters go out and take on a less dangerous and not relentless Norris, but that wasn't the case, Norris hadn't punched himself out, and he was highly likely to continue the brutal beating in round 4, it was Waters that had had it beaten out of him, who was drained and also hurting a lot, so I think that was a good decision from the corner. It takes two to make a great fight, and Waters did great, he was just in against one of the greats of the 90s, and a very dangerous fighter who had the beating of him.
