1992-02-22 Terry Norris w rsc 9 Carl Daniels, Sports Arena, San Diego, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Lou Filippo. Not one to miss an opportunity, the challenger took the opening two rounds when scoring well with southpaw jabs and crosses to leave Norris (152) confused. However, Norris came back well in the third and was soon forcing Daniels (152) to the ropes where he consistently scored with heavy two-handed blows to the head. It was clear by the eighth that the inexperienced Daniels, his left eye badly swollen, was being worn down. And when a barrage of punches sent him to the canvas in the ninth the referee pulled him out of the contest on the 2.37 mark without even bothering to take up the count.
