1991-07-20 John David Jackson w pts12 Tyrone Trice, The Racecourse, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBO. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 116-111, 116-111, 117-110. In what was a disappointing fight, Jackson (153) constantly boxed on the outside at speed while Trice (154) plodded after him in the hope that he would eventually tire. As the rounds went by it looked hopeless for Trice as Jackson continued to pepper him with light southpaw jabs before moving out of range. However, never giving up hope Trice eventually got to Jackson when dropping him with a right to the head in the 11th, but after beating the count with several seconds to spare the latter quickly went back to his tried and trusted tactics to make it to the final bell.
