1992-05-09 Terry Norris w rsc 4 Meldrick Taylor, Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Mills Lane. Impressing even more than previous, the champion made quick work of the once gifted Taylor (149), who was clinically taken apart. Although Taylor came out fast to knock Norris (149) off balance by the third he was under pressure as two-handed punches thudded in to his head and body. Coming out for the fourth, Norris ripped into Taylor and following a battery of solid punches the latter slid to the floor. Up at ‘seven’, Taylor tried to fight back but was soon put down again. Having taken the mandatory count for the second time, Taylor was allowed to continue before the contest was called off on the 2.55 mark when he was being battered without response.
