    Norris I’d say.

    Until Trinidad wrecked him though Vargas was looking very promising so who knows what would’ve eventuated if he was moved a bit more cautiously?

    Norris was too quick. Vargas had heavy hands but I don't think could catch Terry with anything he didn't see coming. Norris could really pepper Vargas with combos to the head. Fernando would play that macho game with a guy who doesn't give a ****.
    It would be a brutal KO. For Terry Norris around 9 or 10 rounds.

    Norris was one of my favorites and I think he would be the favorite here, but I would call it a 60/40 type of fight. Vargas is certainly a live dog that could win this.

    I like Terry big time in this match. His hand speed and power was a rare combination. The only way I see Vargas winning is if Norris hits him while he's down and gets DQ. I still can't believe Norris did that twice.

    I honestly think David was more talented than Vargas but his eye issues really hampered him as a pro especially after the detached Retina he suffered against Tito. I saw him fight live a few times as an amateur and he was unreal. I thought for sure he would be a dominant pro for years to come. Now he is broke and legally blind.

    He did it more than twice. He just didn’t get DQ’d for it every time like he should’ve.

    He blatantly ran across the ring and clocked SRL in the second round. He should have been DQ’d for that immediately and he also did the same to Donald Curry the very next fight.

    Norris despite his gifts and talent was dirty and dumb in the ring. I never was a big fan of his because of this.

    I don't think he's blind. He had a detached retina in one eye only as far as I know.
