1 May (116lbs) [[Monte Attell]] w co 3 (20) [[Bobby Johnson]], [[Nixon Opera House, Winnemucca, Nevada]], USA. Referee: [[Al Pape]]. Billed as a defence of Attell’s 116lbs title claim it was generally seen to be a ‘fake’, with sparring at long range for the opening five minutes being ended when Johnson was dropped by a low blow. With the referee ignoring Attell’s misdemeanour, the third round saw Johnson falling about like an actor before staying down to be counted out.
