1993-06-19 Terry Norris w rtd 3 Troy Waters, Sports Arena, San Diego, California, USA - WBC. Marty Denkin. Treating the London-born Waters (152) with disdain, Norris (154) ripped into his challenger from the opening bell, looking for a quick finish. Punching with blinding speed, Thomas eventually found a blow to drop Waters, a cracking overarm right to the temple, but was lucky to escape a severe censure when hitting his man while down. With the end seemingly near, Waters not only made it to his feet, but lasted out the round with clever defensive boxing. Then, in the second, with the champion firing in solid punches, Waters put him down with a right to the temple. Badly embarrassed Norris got up and the pair went at each other to see the session out, but it looked to be just a matter of time. After being dropped by a right to the head in the third, Waters, gashed on the cheek and over both eyes, somehow lasted the round out before being retired by his corner during the interval.
