CALLUM JOHNSON is out of his British light-heavyweight title fight with Frank Buglioni. Johnson was due to challenge the champion on Saturday (October 28) on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs Carlos Takam at the Principality stadium in Cardiff.

Last week Johnson was struck down by an ailment, suffering from serious pains in the right hand side of his chest. He was checked into hospital on Tuesday and kept under observation until Friday. Tests are being run to diagnose the problem.

On social media Johnson said, “There’s no one more gutted than me I’m truly devastated and I’m truly sorry to everyone that was going to support me.
