BOSTON fighter Callum Johnson earned his fifth straight win since turning pro - stopping Doncaster’s James Tucker in what he described as a ‘perfect night’.

Jhnson Johnson, 26, became only the third fighter to stop The Slugger in his 59 professional bouts.

And he did so in style, showing why he is becoming one of the rising stars in the light heavyweight division.

“It was the perfect night,” Johnson said.

“I boxed to the plan and I stopped him as well.

“You can’t ask for much more than that.”

In his first fight to go more than four rounds, Johnson - nicknamed The One - kept his opponent at bay with his neat jab before landing a flurry of blows to finish his opponent off.

The fight was switched from Oldham Sports Centre to Bowlers, Trafford, before Friday’s event.

But that didn’t affect Commonwealth Games gold medallist Johnson, who trains at Manchester’s Gallagher’s Gym.

This was Johnson’s third stoppage, having previously finished off Philip Townley and Tommy Tolan early.

He has also defeated Lee Duncan and Jody Meikle.
