Callum Johnson v Willbeforce Shihepo Commonwealth Light-Heavyweight Title

WHEN Matchroom Boxing USA began their assault across the pond last year, we were promised that some of the British based fighters would be handed the opportunity to demonstrate their skills against some of the best fighters based in America. Callum Johnson has been one of the fighters to benefit most from the British based promotional company making waves in America, and the former British and Commonwealth light-heavyweight champion is thoroughly enjoying the opportunities that he has been handed.

Johnson dismantled Sean Monaghan in three rounds back in March, which served as the perfect recovery from losing his unbeaten record at the hands of IBF world champion Artur Beterbiev last October, where he was stopped in the fourth round of an entertaining battle.

Johnson said, “I’m just waiting at the moment for the next date and then it’s all systems go once again. I’m really enjoying the little trips over to America and I’m hoping they continue. Listening to everyone before the fight with Monaghan, it was supposed to be a tough test for me, so to do the job on him that I did was a good statement to make when it was meant to be a hard fight.
