Hall of Fame
My fight career lasted from 1964-1974. I started off by losing his first three tournaments but, by 1966, I was almost unbeatable. Among the numerous titles I won were The National Karate Championships (1966), All-Star Championships (1966), World Middleweight Karate Championship (1967), All-American Karate Championship (1967), Internationals (1968), World Professional Middleweight Karate Championship (defeating Louis Delgado on 24 November 1968), All-American Championship (1968), National Tournament of Champions (1968), American Tang Soo Championship, and the North American Karate Championship. I compiled a fight record of 65-5 with wins over champions Joe Lewis, Skipper Mullins, Arnold Urquidez, Ronald L. Marchini, Victor Moore, Louis Delgado, and Steve Sanders. Of the five men to beat me, three were Allen Steen, Joe Lewis, and Norris's last career defeat to Louis Delgado in 1968. I retired as undefeated Professional Full-Contact Middleweight Champion in 1974.
