Frank Buglioni/Callum Johnson - War At The O2

Can Frank Buglioni Write His Name In History, Or Will Callum Johnson Ruin The Party?

By

Boxing fans have been spoilt by high-quality cards across the globe for the first quarter of 2018, and this weekend's action is certainly no different. The two combatants of the main event will look to insert themselves into the heavyweight title picture. But for me, the most intriguing fight on the cards is the battle for British light-heavyweight supremacy.

Whilst a certain young man from Hackney looms in the wings, Matchroom Boxing has arguably the three best men in the division in its stable.

This coming Saturday sees Frank ‘The Wise Guy’ Buglioni defend his Lord Lonsdale belt for the third time against hard-hitting Commonwealth Champion, Callum Johnson. It is fair to say that Buglioni has had a major resurgence since moving from the 168 to the 175-pound division following a loss to Fedor Chudinov back in September 2015. A new trainer in Don Charles seemingly breathing new life into the North London man.Whilst you could argue he was on his way to a points loss to Hosea Burton, facts are facts. Buglioni produced a stunning stoppage and hasn’t looked back. Defences against Ricky Summers and Craig Richards have followed. Victory over Johnson would etch Buglioni’s name in history, from claiming the belt to owning outright in just fifteen months would be nothing short of astounding. But he isn't going to have it his own way……

For standing across the ring from him will be Callum Johnson, a man hell-bent on taking the British title away from its current owner and smiling while he does it. Johnson certainly appears eager to make up for lost time. This fight was originally supposed to happen in October, but a chest injury to Johnson forced him to pull out and Craig Richards to take his place. Johnson is strong on the inside and punishes his foes with crunching lefts to the body and head, something Buglioni will be well aware of.

I usually like to pick a winner in every fight, but out of respect for both men, I have chosen not to do so. Buglioni is in the form of his life, for him victory will allow him to take home is the belt to own until the end of his days. He is highly ranked by the IBF and who knows, a victory over Johnson may put him one more rung up the ladder in his quest for a second shot at a world title (Currently held by Artur Beterbiev). Buglioni can box when he wants too and is no stranger to a fight. One thing his opponent will have to be wary of is just how much power the champion carries late. Something trainer, Joe Gallagher would have no doubt prepared him for.

This is no doubt Johnson’s biggest test of a sixteen fight career. One negative for the challenger is his inactivity. Stepping into the ring against a fighter of Buglioni’s calibre is a huge potential banana skin.

May the best man win!
