Having had trouble making the weight, Norris (188¾) boxed very much in a subdued fashion and by the seventh he looked completely exhausted and had long run out of ideas against a challenger who although behind on the cards had barely exerted himself. The eighth round saw Norris all at sea, and having been hurt by a left hook and an overarm right to the head earlier on as Miller (186¾) picked up the pace he was counted out at 2.04 of the session. Driven to the floor by solid blows from both hands, Norris tried to get up before falling back to the canvas where he was administered oxygen before being able to leave he ring.
