About Terry Norris

Terry Norris, born on June 17, 1967, in Lubbock, Texas, is a former American professional boxer. He was known for his lightning-fast hands and powerful punches, which earned him the nickname "Terrible." Norris had a successful career, winning multiple world titles in two weight classes.

Norris began his professional career in 1986 and quickly made a name for himself with his impressive knockout power. He won his first world title in 1989, defeating John Mugabi to become the WBC light-middleweight champion. He successfully defended his title six times before moving up to the middleweight division.

In 1991, Norris won the WBC middleweight title by defeating Sugar Ray Leonard. He defended his title three times before losing it to Simon Brown in 1993. Norris regained the title in a rematch with Brown later that year.

Norris retired in 1998 with a record of 47 wins, 9 losses, and 1 draw, with 31 wins coming by way of knockout. He was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2005.

Despite his success in the ring, Norris faced personal struggles outside of boxing. He was arrested multiple times for domestic violence and struggled with drug addiction.

In a 2017 interview with The Ring, Norris spoke about his regrets and the importance of seeking help for mental health issues. "I wish I would have gotten help earlier," he said. "I would have been a better person, a better father, a better husband."

Norris' legacy as a boxer is undeniable, but his personal struggles serve as a reminder of the importance of seeking help and taking care of one's mental health.
