Frank Buglioni Plans To Ko Callum Johnson

Not surprisingly Frank Buglioni only sees one winner when he makes the third defence of his British light heavyweight title on the Dillian Whyte vs Lucas Browne undercard at the O2 in London on Saturday night.


Even though Johnson has 11 knockouts to his credit in 16 unbeaten fights, Buglioni believes that the fact Johnson has not fought since September, 2016, also go against him.


"If I am being completely honest, we will know pretty early whether Callum Johnson is up to the test," Buglioni exclusively told Sky Sports.


"If he is not, it will go early, and I am talking within three rounds. I’m hitting very hard at the moment and I expect that to keep increasing, so if he is not sharp and a little bit careless and I catch him, I will finish him, and finish him early.

"If he comes in very sharp and the best form of his life, I see him hanging on a little bit longer and I expect to wear him down and stop him late on.


Buglioni added: "Inactivity is going to be his detriment, and the regularity and top-quality fights I’ve had in the last 12 to 18 months is going to play to my advantage.”


"I’m feeling in the best shape of my career. I know it’s probably a bit cliché to say as most fighters do, but that’s probably how it should be. Every fight that goes by, you should get better, stronger and more experienced and learn from your mistakes. I’ve had plenty of mistakes along the line and I’ve learnt from every single one of them. I’m raring to go.
