1994-11-12 Orlin Norris w co 2 James Heath, The Bullring, Mexico City, Mexico - WBA. Referee: Julio Alvarado. In what was an easy defence for Norris (187¾), his challenger barely bothered him before being stopped at 2.46 of the second round. Having dropped Heath (187¾) with a cracking left uppercut in the opening session, Norris remained on the attack, concentrating on the body before backing his man to the ropes and dropping him with an overarm right to the jaw. Although Heath managed to beat the count he was clearly in no position to continue and the fight was immediately halted.
