1997-09-16 Marc Johnson w pts 12 Angel Almena, Municipal Auditorium, Nashville, Tennessee, USA - IBF. Referee: Larry Doggett. Scorecards: 119-107, 119-107, 119-107. For a man with so much talent Johnson (112) proved to be easy to hit as far as Almena (112) was concerned, but to be fair the Puerto Rican had a massive reach advantage. However, Johnson was well on top all the way. Despite flooring the challenger in the second, unable to repeat the feat again against such a gangly, awkward opponent Johnson was forced to settle for the points.
