1991-12-13 Terry Norris w pts 12 Jorge Castro, Bercy Sports Palace, Paris, France - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 117-111, 118-109, 120-108. Superior in every department, the champion boxed brilliantly, whether in defence or attack, and although he failed to knock Castro (154) down it was due more to the Argentinian being tremendously tough rather than a lack of power. Picking his punches and jabbing strongly at all times, Norris (151¼) was a revelation and when put on the defensive by the charging Castro he either moved out of range or was able to cover up without taking too much. That was virtually the story of the fight and while always dangerous Castro lacked the ability to open the champion up.
