Boston boxer Callum Johnson will return to the ring on March 8.

The light heavyweight will compete at Liverpool Olympia, with his opponent yet to be named.

“I don’t care who I’m fighting,” said Johnson, who is undefeated in his five fights since turning professional.

“I’m taking it one fight at a time.

“Whoever I’m in there with, I’m going in to win.

“I just want to get back in the ring and have a good year.”

Also on the card will be Johnson’s Gallagher’s Gym stablemate Stephen Smith.

British Super-Flyweight champion Paul Butler will also be in the same ring that night.
