  • WBA Middleweight Championship (4th defense by Johnson)


  • The bout was a close tactical affair, with Jackson doing just enough to snare his second world title by a close unanimous decision.
  • Jackson said in 2014 that Johnson was the best overall fighter he faced during his career. "At the time I beat him for his WBA middleweight title, he was the best in the division," Jackson said. "To beat him at his best was an accomplishment for me." [1]
