I believe Norris also almost lost to Jorge Vaca.As for the Kelly bout Kelly was known as a light puncher but yet shook Norris.

As for this bout I think Norris would win based on his movement and combination punching.I think his movement would really trouble Starling and Starling really didn't have true knockout power.He was a very strong boxer on the inside but his power was below average.
Ray Leonard-5 time world champion and strongly favored to win

John Mugabi-then the current champion favored to win as well

In both cases the fearless and unlimited talent of Norris upset the odds and the experts with effortless, flawless wins over these two greats. Starling should be greatful he didnt have to face him.

Yeah ray leonard was so old that only what 2 and a half years before that fight he stopped danny lalonde, went 12 rounds with thomas hearns and yes it was a close fight, not as one sided as every hearns nuthugger tries to imply. Then after he shutout a duran that just beat iran barkley. Wow he was so washed up, lol.

Leonards last topline performance was Hagler. He looked shyte against a Hearns who was declined as well, Lalonde was at a catchweight, not that talented, and gave him hell, and Duran would have got shutout by a Nunn, Leonard or any other top mover. The Benitez that beat him at 154 would have shut him out too the night Leonard did.

2 1/2 years is a long time, especially when you are already past it, especially at the age Leonard was.

You know Leonard could have beaten any jr middleweight in history the night he lost to Norris except for Hearns, McCallum, Norris, Ayala. Wilfred benitez? He's a pacifist and would have been toast. Leonard was barely off a year and between defenses. He was in the best shape of his life but isnt the caliber of a Terry Norris which I lready knew. Stop making up problems that dont exist.

Yes, who could be a credible as you

Here you are in the general forum 5 minutes ago knocking Spinks for not rematching Eddie and Qawi

Quote:
BROWNPIMP - Another thing bob foster gave rematches to guys like fourie and henry hank. Michael spinks never gave rematches to qawi and eddie mustafa even when they clearly demanded it.

The facts


Spinks gave Eddie a rematch, Eddie couldn't make the weight and refused to even try after what happened weight wise in their initial encounter.

Spinks and Qawi were to rematch in September 84, but about 2 weeks before the bout Qawi got injured and pulled out. There was also talk of Qawi suffering from depression from recent personal events.

it must really hurt to lose in this manner when a man coming off a 3 year layoff, never having fought at middleweight upsets the 3-1 odds only to lose the way he did to another 3-1 underdog when Leonard had all the advantages.

If they can brag about the win over Hagler how much more do we have a right to claim the superiority of Norris?

terry norris by a big, wide as a trick decision

terry is too active against a peek a boo style. this is why i would vouch for terry to beat winky easily. and give mcallum problems.

Exactly, and Keith Mullings just has better boxing skill than Terry Norris can ever dream of. We can face the facts JT, why can't you?

You've got me there SS, dang. Mullins, Rosenblatt and Boudouani did indeed expose Norris to be rather overrated, and durability challnged as well. I guess it's also time to face the fact Tarver and Johnson too were just better fighters than Roy Jones Jr ever was too. Prime Jones knocked comatose by the lethal fists of immortals Tarver and the Road Warrior.

Good to see that you've come to your senses. And Terry and Roy woud have been heavy favourites against most of those fighters when they lost, which of course is definitive proof of Roy and Terry being prime

Terry would have beaten any JMiddle ever excepting Julian Jackon, Mullins, Rosenblatt and Boudouani the night he lost to the latter 3! Oh and first fight Simon Brown! That's as long as he kept his weird fetish for hitting fighters while they were down in check.

Quite simply he was unbeatable - except when he lost!
