2008-04-12 Chad Dawson w pts 12 Glen Johnson, St Petersburg Times Forum, Tampa, Florida, USA - WBC. Referee: Tommy Kimmons. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-112, 116-112. On 19 April at the Tineretului Park Arena, Bucharest, Romania, Adrian Diaconu outpointed Chris Henry over 12 rounds to win the vacant WBC ‘interim’ title. In July, rather than be forced into a defence against Diaconu, Dawson handed in his belt to challenge Antonio Tarver for the IBF title and the Romanian was upgraded to full championship status.
