2004-03-06 Marc Johnson w rsc 4 Luis Bolano, Foxwoods Resort Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA - WBO. Referee: Arthur Mercante Jr. Defending the title for the first time, Johnson (115) took on an unbeaten fellow southpaw at just three weeks notice and proceeded to hand him a boxing lesson before really getting down to work. Having shown his hand-speed to dominate the early action, Johnson opened up in the fourth to drop Bolano (115) with an explosive right hook. Although Bolano made it to his feet he was there for the taking and Johnson walked in with right uppercuts to the body, prior to sinking in a tremendous left hook to the solar plexus. With Bolano on the floor, the referee stopped the contest on the 2.40 mark after reaching the count of ‘four’.
