1999-04-24 [[Marc Johnson]] w pts 12 [[Ratanachai Sor Vorapin (Singwancha)]], MCI Centre, Washington DC, USA - IBF. Referee: Marshall Cunningham. Scorecards: 118-109, 117-110, 116-110. Billed for the vacant title fight following [[Johnny Tapia]]’s decision to hand in his belt saw Johnson (115) prove his worth in a battle of clever southpaws. Sor Vorapin (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. Johnson had turned in his IBF flyweight belt to take this one on.
