1999-08-13 [[Marc Johnson]] w tdec 9 [[Jorge Lacierva]], Foxwoods Casino, Ledyard, Connecticut, USA - IBF. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 77-75, 79-73, 70-73. Lacking his normal verve, Johnson (115) made heavy weather of a successful defence against the switch-hitting Lacierva (114½), being anything but dominant and generally allowing the challenger to dictate matters in the initial rounds. The fight turned in the fourth when a clash of heads left the Mexican with an inch-long gash over the right eye, and from that point on Johnson took control when attacking the body and getting his combinations going. At the start of the ninth it was obvious that Lacierva would not be able to carry on much longer, and at 2.07 the referee called a halt and went to the scorecards.
