Bout Summary

Toledo was warned in round four for low blows. With seven seconds left in the fourth round, Toledo turned his back to Johnston and went to his corner. It almost appeared that he felt the round was over. The announcers, however, thought it was Toledo quitting. Nonetheless, referee Curtis Thrasher allowed the fight to continue. In the fifth round, both fighters stopped punching at the ten second warning. Admittedly, it did sound quite similar to the round ending bell. Toledo was hurt in the sixth round from a right hook. He was warned again in the eighth for low blows and in the twelfth for headbutts after a clash led to a small cut over Johnston's left eye.
