1999-04-24 [[Marc Johnson]] w pts 12 [[Ratanachai Sorvoraphin]], MCI Centre, Washington DC, USA - IBF. Referee: Marshall Cunningham. Scorecards: 118-109, 117-110, 116-110. A vacant title fight following Johnny Tapia’s decision to hand in his belt saw Johnson (115), having abandoned the IBF flyweight championship, prove his worth in a battle of clever southpaws. Sorvoraphin (114) did well, but Johnson did better, meeting jab with jab, picking his man off with a clever array of punches and generally controlling a very good opponent.
