I like Norris though. He had good skills, and took chances despite his bad chin so you gotta give the guy credit for that. I think he could have beaten some of the fighters he lost to via KO had he boxed smarter.

The 80s were not the golden age of welterweights

Ray leonard is more skilled than Watters but as you saw, Terry made the most of his chance when given it. he fought a strict, dispilined fight plan as outlined by his trainers Sanchez and Stoyanovich.

When Terry gets into a brawl he makes mistakes but when he uses all of his natural gifts as we saw in the Brown rematch, he is near perfect

I dont think Ray knew what hit him and taken a bit off guard. He may have know it was coming but even so, by round three it was too late for adjustments because the damage inflicted by our young hero. Terry set the tone and Ray simply could not get outside the groove if you know what I mean. Ray still did better than I expected

No disrespect, just giving the facts.

I don't have a problem with Terry Norris, but I've tried to talk sense to Rooster and Blanco before but they've got a few screws loose. I don't even bother any more.

I have every right to talk, I'm not being a troll, I'm just expressing my opinion. The very non-special Iran Barkley shattered Hearns chin but now its out of the realm of possibility for Norris to do so?...Again that fight is 50/50.

Great post Rooster and as you pointed out awhile ago when Leonard couldn't find an opening he did nothing as shown in the early and middle stages of the Hearns fight. And Ray would struggle to find openings on Terry and Terry had stamina for days so he cant count on Terry tiring out.

I quite like opinions, just not those expressed by Blanco and Rooster when Norris is being discussed.

Regardless, my point was well made. I'm not usually this ignorant, but people aren't usually this stupid.
