1993-02-20 [[Terry Norris]] w rsc 2 [[Maurice Blocker]], Azteca Stadium, Mexico City, Mexico - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Making poor use of his three-inch reach advantage, Blocker (151½) was unable to trouble the champion, who soon found that his left hook would be his best weapon on the night when dropping his rival with that punch in the opening session. Having taken the mandatory count, Blocker was all at sea and was reeling around the ring before being dumped again by Norris (150), this time by a crashing right to the head. Somehow, Blocker made it to the bell, but there was little time for him to recover and after 49 seconds of the second he was rescued by the referee when he was swaying badly following a non-stop attack from Norris.
