1995-08-19 Terry Norris w rsc 2 Luis Santana, MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. Bringing the men together for the third time was probably more than Norris (152) deserved, but this time round he took advantage of the situation. Fighting with controlled aggression, Norris let Santana (154) come on to him in the opening session and almost finished the fight there and then when a left-right sent the champion staggering into a corner, only for the referee to hold the action up for no discernable reason. In the second, Santana was under pressure right from the off and after being dropped three times was rescued by the referee on the 2.09 mark.
