1990-07-13 Terry Norris w pts 12 Rene Jacquot, Skating Rink, Annecy, France - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 117-109, 120-107, 119-108. Having lost his title to John Mugabi in peculiar circumstances, Jacquot (153¾) was given a crack at Norris (152½), who had taken over from the Ugandan a few months previously. Although Jacquot was knocked down in the first and second rounds, with great heart he struggled back into the contest without ever looking likely to win and used stalling and clutching tactics as a substitute for good defence. It was easy for Norris, but his lack of experience enabled the hardy Jacquot to stay the distance, even though he was dropped again in the 11th by a left-right-left combination to the head.
