2005-06-18 [[Antonio Tarver]] w pts 12 [[Glen Johnson]], FedEx Forum, Memphis, Tennessee, USA – IBO/The Ring. Referee: Bill Clancy. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 115-113. Gaining his revenge, Tarver (173) used his three-inch reach advantage to better effect this time round as he repeatedly backed the champion up. It was hardly surprising that both men were tiring in the middle rounds and by then Johnson (173½) was feeling it more than Tarver. With Johnson’s left eye swelling fast, despite giving it one final effort it was Tarver who produced the better work in the closing stages to warrant the unanimous verdict.
