1996-01-27 Terry Norris w co 2 Jorge Luis Vado, Veterans’ Memorial Coliseum, Phoenix, Arizona, USA - WBC/IBF. Referee: Roger Yanez. Technically defending both belts, despite the contest not being recognised by the WBC, Norris (152½) was soon teeing off against the limited Vado (153½), who winged in long, wide punches normally associated with a club fighter. With Norris having taken a good look at his challenger in the first round, it seemed clear that he would be going for a kayo and it was no surprise when a burst of punches followed by a terrific right to the jaw saw Vado counted out after 42 seconds of the second.
