Clacton light-heavyweight Justin Johnson is hoping for a busy year to get his career back in track.
Johnson has been on the wrong end of a pair of disappointing decisions at the start of his pro career and the 34 year old says he’s looking to rebuild in 2018.
He’s matched with Darren Snow on promoter Mickey Helliet’s show at the York Hall in Bethnal Green on Saturday, February 10 and says that’s the start of a busy year for him.
“I want to be fighting all the time, every week if I can,” said Johnson, who has seventh fight next month.
“I’ve started late and that’s how I will improve, by fighting regularly.
“I’m planning to do that for the next two or three years and see where it takes me.
“I want to get up to eight-round level and maybe then get a shot at the Southern Area title. I would love to get a belt – or a shot at a belt – out of boxing.
“I’m 34 now, I’m not getting any younger, and I’m looking for a busy year to push my career along.
“I’ve had a couple of results not go my way. There was a draw on my debut (against Mark Till) when everyone thought I won and the crowd booed when the referee gave Mohammed Karimzadeh the decision over me (last November).
“That fight should have been a draw at least.
“I’m looking to rebuild this year and then push on, but even if the results don’t go my way, I’m not going to quit.
“I enjoy boxing and I want to have 30 or 40 fights before I retire.”
Tickets for the show at the York Hall, topped by an eliminator for the Commonwealth super-lightweight title, are available from 07429 525360.
