Lincolnshire-born boxer Callum Johnson will be presented with his retained Commonwealth light heavyweight title and British light heavyweight title at half-time of the Wycombe Wanderers game on Tuesday night.

Johnson defeated Frank Buglioni at the O2 Arena at the end of March by TKO to make it 17 wins from 17 fights, 12 of which by knockout.

'The One' won Commonwealth Games gold in the 81kg Light heavweight category in Delhi in 2010, and soon after switched to professional after signing with Frank Warren.

After winning fights in local areas such as North Hykeham and Grantham, Johnson progressed onto the national scene.

'The One' won his first title fight after securing the vacant Commonwealth light heavyweight title at the Manchester Arena in September, 2016.

Following injury, Johnson's first defence came in March this year, as he fought Buglioni on the undercard of Dillian Whyte vs Lucas Browne - and he succeeded, as well as claiming the British light heavyweight title.
