1996-08-31 Tom Johnson w pts 12 Ramon Guzman, Point Depot, Dublin, Ireland - IBF. Referee: Sam Williams. Scorecards: 119-107, 118-107, 118-109. Forced to go the distance, Johnson (126) put Guzman (125¼) down twice in the third round, again in the seventh and ninth, and staggered him throughout the 12th before the final bell brought matters to a halt. Punching well to head and body, Johnson appeared to be on the verge of a stoppage several times, but having damaged his right hand early on he had to satisfy himself with a points win.
