2003-08-16 [[Marc Johnson]] w pts 12 [[Fernando Montiel]], Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA - WBO. Referee: Michael Ortega. Scorecards: 115-112, 117-110, 114-114. In suffering his first defeat in 28 bouts, Montiel (115) also lost his title as the ringwise former flyweight champion, Johnson (115), basically kidded and jabbed him out of it. It was not that Johnson was special, it was more a case of Montiel not doing enough and he only occasionally showed any urgency in his work against a crafty southpaw who had seen better days. Still, if Johnson did not throw as many jabs as he used to he was still dangerous and he dropped Montiel with a cracking right hook in the fifth round, but was unable to sustain the pressure and the champion survived.
