Default Was Trinidad supposed to fight Norris?

Coz at boxrec it says he was fighting a WBC LMW eliminator fight vs Troy Waters in august of '97. I know Terry lost his title not too long after that, was that the reason the fight never happened? I guess so.

Norris was going to sign with King and fight Trinidad. But Arum promised him a shot at Oscar DLH if he signed with Top Rank. In his first fight on a Top Rank PPV undercard, he was stopped by journeyman Keith Mullings and his career suddenly went straight downhill. Norris lost millions of dollars getting upset by Mullings.

Norris definitely drops Tito. Trinidad would get up tho and Terry would get greedy and go for that extra punch or two more in a combo when he should be moving and BAM! Tito left hook - fight essentially over.

They could've fought for a number of years. Would've been great. I got Tito in that one.

I was under the impression Norris was under contract with King during most of his reign and most of the Trinidad talk. It wasn't til the end that Norris got free from King and signed with Arum.
King liked to keep his own promoted fighters seperate. Which is why fighters like Chavez Sr. and A. Nelson or Keith Holmes and William Joppy never fought each other but were often in the ring with fighers from other promoters. This was even true when King had multiple heavyweight champions

Yes, with Terry's amazing speed and very good punching power and Tito's history, a knockdown would be almost unavoidable. And with Terry's famously bad chin, it'd take an absolute top notch performance for him to surive thru 12 rounds-unless he managed to get him out of there, which is hard. Trinidad on the other hand had a good chin. But Terry DID have a monster left hook, so...who knows.

Norris and Trinidad were on seperate undercards in the Tyson-Seldon bout, both were being talk upon for a showdown the following year, I was disappointed thru Norris ran off from Tito, who had to faced Waters instead, signing with Arum was Terry's way to avoid a big puncher, he got knockout by Keith Mullings later that year in the undercard of a Dela Hoya fight.
