1994-07-02 Orlin Norris w rsc 3 Arthur Williams, Mirage Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBA. Referee: Richard Steele. Ordered to defend his title against Williams for the second time following their earlier contest, Norris (188) made no mistake this time round. For whatever reason it was clear that Williams (190) was but a pale shadow of the man who had come close to beating the champion, and by the end of the second he had already been set up for the finish. Even though lacking composure, Norris just kept throwing punches in the third and eventually Williams, floored by several terrific overarm rights to the head, was rescued at 1.08 of the session.
