1992-10-27 Reggie Johnson w pts 12 Lamar Parks, The Summit, Houston, Texas, USA - WBA. Referee: Jerry McKenzie. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-113, 116-113. Making his first defence Johnson (159¼) got right down to business, sending in southpaw jabs and countering the plodding Parks (159½) with solid lefts before getting away. It was clear that Parks did not know how to deal with a tricky southpaw, but he was still in there trading punches in the latter rounds without being able to dent the clever Johnson. However, at the final bell there was only one winner.
