1991-08-16 Terry Norris w rsc 1 Brett Lally, Sports Arena, San Diego, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Rudy Ortega. Despite making a tentative start, the champion soon picked it up when under pressure, and having being knocked off balance by a lead right he fired in a left hook that dropped Lally (154). Stunned, but back on his feet, when Lally tried to brawl his way out of it he was sent to the boards. With Norris (153) in full cry and Lally allowed to carry on it was just a matter of time, a barrage of blows followed by a thudding right to the jaw dropping the latter for the third time before the referee called it off. The finish, timed at 2.40, was the third quickest in the division’s history.
