1995-10-13 Jorge Castro w pts 12 Reggie Johnson, Comodoro Rivadavia Stadium, Chubut, Argentina - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Scorecards: 118-113, 115-113, 112-115. Fighting for the first time since a car crash in July, it was only the lack of aggression on the part of Johnson (157¾) that saved the day for Castro (160). By the tenth, after Castro began to get into his stride he swept through the last two sessions, driving Johnson before him. The fight was too close for comfort as far as Castro was concerned, and had Johnson not been deducted a point in the sixth for butting he might have pulled it off.
