1995-07-22 Nate Miller w co 8 Orlin Norris, London Arena, Millwall, London, England - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Having had trouble making the weight Norris (188¾) boxed very much in a subdued fashion, and by the seventh he looked completely exhausted after running out of ideas against a challenger who although behind on the cards had barely exerted himself. All at sea in the eighth, having been hurt by a left hook and an overarm right to the head earlier on as Miller (186¾) picked up the pace, Norris 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 prior to leaving the ring.
