1993-11-30 Tom Johnson w rsc 9 Stephane Haccoun, Sports Palace, Marseille, France - IBF. Referee: Pete Podgorski. Outboxing the plodding challenger from the start, Johnson (126) picked his man apart from long range with an excellent jab paving the way for solid combinations to head and body. Haccoun (126), to his credit, kept going bravely until being overwhelmed by a heavy attack in the ninth round, which left him backed up against the ropes until the referee stepped in to rescue him on the 1.16 mark.
