1994-02-12 Tom Johnson w pts 12 Orlando Soto, Cervantes Convention Centre, St Louis, Missouri, USA - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Scorecards: 117-109, 116-110, 115-111. Dominating most of the rounds and working hard, Johnson (126) was good value for his victory. It looked as though Johnson was on his way to an early night when he floored Soto (126) in the fifth, but a few moments later he was badly hurt himself by long straight right. Still, the better boxing was always with Johnson even though he was cautious over the last few rounds, and although Soto was dangerous he only fought in spurts.
