Callum Johnson will make his return to the ring in March.

The Commonwealth Games gold medallist has been told by promoter Frank Warren that his sixth pro fight is imminent.

And that’s good news for the 27-year-old, who hasn’t been in action since May last year.

A mixture of boxing cards being cancelled and injury have seen him frustrated by his lack of ring time.

Johnson (pictured) has already stated that he feels 2013 is a make or break year for him.

He said: “It is do or die for me.

“I’m not getting any younger and I need to keep getting my name out there.

“I want to fight five or six times (this year), and I still want to fight for a title.”

It is still hoped he could have a crack at Ovill Mckenzie’s Commonwealth title this year.

Light heavyweight Johnson is unbeaten since turning professional at the end of 2010.

He began his professional career by stopping Philip Townley in Glasgow.

Jody Meikle was next to be seen off with a points victory.

Lee Duncan suffered the same fate, before Tommy ‘the Tiger’ Tolan was beaten with a knockout.

James Tucker was seen off by virtue of a TKO.

Johnson claimed gold in Delhi representing Scotland, who he qualified to fight for through his grandmother.

Although a date is yet to be announced, Johnson has been told that he will fight in March.
