Callum Johnson looks set to defend his Commonwealth light heavyweight title against Schiller Hyppolite on April 15.

Although Johnson had been told he was on the card at Glasgow, he has only recently learned that the Canadian will be his opponent.

Thirty-year-old Hyppolite - nicknamed Batman - has won 21 of his 23 pro fights, winning 14 of those by knockout.

Of his two defeats, one has also come by knockout.

Boston fighter Johnson, 31, has won all 16 of his professional bouts.
