Callum Johnson’s next fight date has been changed.

The Commonwealth gold medallist (right) was due to fight on the undercard of Nathan Cleverly’s WBO light heavyweight title defence against Vyacheslav Uzelkov on October 27.

But that card has been cancelled. Johnson will now fight at Liverpool Olympia on November 9. His opponent is yet to be named.

The unbeaten Boston light heavyweight remains confident he can win his sixth pro fight. “I’m always confident,” he told The Standard. “I’m sure I can still knock him out, whoever he is.”
