Johnson Loses Unanimous Decision in Montreal!
DC light heavyweight Alexander "The Great" Johnson (shown with trainer Darryll Tyson) dropped a 10-round unanimous decision to undefeated Eleider "Storm" Alvarez of Montreal, Canada tonight at the Bell Centre in Montreal on a Showtime Extreme Network telecast.
Johnson's lack of power was evident in the contest as he couldn't keep Alvarez from landing shots. Alvarez dropped Johnson with a right hand in the fifth round. Johnson stayed in the contest but didn't have enough offense to turn the tide. All three judges scored the contest, 97-92.
Johnson's record is now 15-2, six KO's. Both of Johnson's losses have come on Showtime broadcasts. Alvarez remains undefeated at 15-0, eight KO's.
Later tonight on Showtime, Salisbury, MD middleweight Fernando Guerrero challenges David Lemieux of Montreal for the vacant NABF Middleweight title.
