Callum Johnson took his unbeaten professional record to eight straight wins on Friday night - following his points victory over Nathan King.

The Boston boxer was back at Glasgow’s Braehead Arena, where he had won three bouts previously.

And the familiar surroundings did Johnson no harm as he was given the decision following four rounds of action.

“He’s a tough oppnent and a step up in class for me,” Johnson said of King.

“Some of the best lads out there have gone the distance with him.

“I’m pleased with the performance and to be back in the big arena again.”
