The 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medal winner will be having his first pro fight in England, having already won two out of two North of the boarder after boxing for Scotland at last year’s Delhi games and getting his paid career under way there.

Johnson grew up in Boston, Lincolnshire, but with his family ties being from Scotland and boxing for them as an amateur, now likes to represent both countries as a pro prospect with plenty of promise.

Johnson who is trained in Manchester by successful coach Joe Gallagher will come up against Ingle-trained stylist Lee Duncan for his 3rd fight. Duncan will be another step for Johnson, who is managed by former world featherweight champion Prince Naseem Hamed.

BritishBoxers visited Callum at Gallagher’s Gym this week to watch him go through his training and to catch-up and chat about his preparations for his next fight.
