Default Terry Norris vs Winky Wright

Might as well get things started off again.
Terry Norris was the harder puncher.
Winky Wright had the better defence and the better chin.
Both Norris and Wright have great handspeed.

Who wins and why?

If they had met in the mid 90s, it would of been a no-brainer...

Peak against peak at 154lbs is a tough one, maybe Norris at his absolute best could win a close but unanimous decision, but Norris was a tad flakey...

Norris by decision. I think it would be close, and competative. I think Norris lands the heavier looking shots to take the majority of the rounds.

Terry Norris by UD. Wright doesn't have the power to bother Norris.

Norris all the way. Neither speedsters nor cuties could pose a problem for the great one.

Wright was neither. He was a skilled pressure/boxer with great defense.

This is a great match-up! Very interesting fight...Norris at his peak, was very fun to watch...great style with speed and power...I'm going to be in the minority, I'm sure...but I'm picking Winky Wright. I believe he could offset Norris for the most part with his southpaw jab. Norris would score, and rattle Wright at times...But Wright has proven his durability thus far in his career...and behind his defense, and the jab...It's Wright by decision. IMO.
