Callum Johnson can win a world title – it’d be perfect story if he gets wish
Callum Johnson is ready to show everyone what they've been missing out on as we plot his path to a world title.
It has been two years since this talented light-heavyweight last fought and that inactivity is something I promise to solve.
The British light-heavyweight scene is currently booming and Johnson is one of the best in this country.
But we also have Lyndon Arthur and Anthony Yarde in the mix, too.
And of course there is Rio Olympic bronze medallist Joshua Buatsi in the division as well.
Johnson is ready to face any of them and that is what I want to see from a fighter.
He signed with me at the start of his professional career when he was managed by Prince Naseem Hamed.
Things didn't really work out but he has gone away and he got himself a world title shot in 2018 after winning the British and Commonwealth belts.
He faced feared Russian Artur Beterbiev for the IBF belt and even floored him in the fight.
Johnson was eventually stopped but he showed in that fight that he is more than capable of mixing it at world level.
Now he's 35 but as he said this week he feels as fresh as a 25-year-old fighter.
I believe he looks after himself outside of the ring.
Still, we won't be hanging around and plan to have him back in action within a couple of months.
It will all be about a big world title push and even at domestic level there are those huge lucrative fights.
We started the journey together and now I hope we can finish it by delivering him a world title.
When he won a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in 2010 for Scotland there was plenty of promise he would go to the top.
Now we look to make it happen.
