Glen Johnson: Are There Any Real Fighters Left?
HOLLYWOOD, FL, August 15 – With two spectacular wins in 2007 over Montell Griffin and Fred Moore, former World Light Heavyweight Champion Glen Johnson has proven that, like a fine wine, he is only getting better with time. And if his performances in the ring didn’t speak loud enough, the refusal of any of the big names at 175 pounds to fight him shouts to the world that just as in the time leading up to his breakout year in 2004, Johnson is the most feared man in boxing.

“I guess I should wear this as a badge of honor, but truthfully, it disgusts me that fighters who call themselves World boxing Champions won’t give me a shot,” said Johnson (46-11-2, 31 KOs). “I’ve earned my way here, I always put on exciting fights, and I give the fans their monies’ worth. Shouldn’t that be worth anything?”
Apparently not according to WBC titlist Chad Dawson, IBF belt holder Clinton Woods, and old rivals Antonio Tarver, Roy Jones Jr. and Bernard Hopkins, who won’t even mention a fight with Johnson.
“They all have amnesia when it comes to my name, and it’s a disgrace,” said Johnson. “Each one of them could have accepted a fight with me but either refused or ignored me. They give their titles a bad name.”
So what is Johnson to do?
What he always does – fight. And eventually, someone, somewhere will have to fight him.
It’s the way of ‘The Road Warrior’.
