Johnson back against Nikolic on September 11

Light-heavyweight contender Callum Johnson is back in business against Serbian Marko Nikolic on the Sunny Edwards vs Jayson Mama undercard at the Copper Box Arena on September 11.

Former IBF title challenger Johnson (19-1, 14 KOs) was last seen halting Croatian Emil Markic in two in April. The 35-year-old puncher will face Nikolic (27-1, 12 KOs) next as he looks to build towards another world title shot.

Ex-British middleweight champion Denzel Bentley (14-1, 12 KOs) will also return against former domestic title challenger Andrew Robinson (24-5-1, 7 KOs).

Battersea’s Bentley will hope to regroup after losing his crown to Felix Cash in three in April.

Portsmouth lightweight Mark Chamberlain (8-0, 5 KOs), Southampton 130-pounder Ryan Garner (10-0, 6 KOs), and former amateur stars Charles Frankham (3-0, 1 KO) and Masood Abdulah (1-0, 0 KOs), will also appear at 135lbs and 130lbs respectively in the pick of the other undercard action.
