Once again it was pure madness that cost Norris (153) as he threw away the opportunity of regaining his old title from Santana (153), with the latter becoming the first man to win back-to-back championship fights by disqualification while being carried out of the ring on a stretcher. The fight had started with Norris boxing smartly and hurting Santana with solid punches before dropping the champion in the second round. Although Santana fought back he was cut over the left eye and being battered. In the third it was more of the same as Santana was floored again, this time by a solid right to the head. With Santana back on his feet and being pummelled, Norris went for the kill, but before any further damage could be done the bell sounded to end the session. It was then that Norris completely lost it when, five or six seconds into the interval, he went for Santana and left the Dominican prostrate on the deck from a big right hand to the jaw.
