Kirk Johnson had put his name on the top of the list of Heavyweight contenders with his knockout victory over Oleg Maskaev and a decisive decision over Larry Donald.  Johnson had showen great punching ability and ring savvy and positioned himself as the mandatory opponent for John Ruiz.  But when Johnson finally got his shot against Ruiz, he laid an egg.  He repeatedly hit Ruiz low and after getting two points deducted, the referee DQ'd Johnson.  The fight was very close at the time and without the point deductions, Johnson would have been winning. Johnson recently had a good step forward with a stoppage victory over Lou Savarese, hopefully with a few other victories ove rth like of Top 20 guys, Johnson can get his confidence back and then get another title shot.
