Glen Johnson was born in 1969 and had his first professional fight in 1993. He is now one fight shy of 70 professional bouts.
You would think that Johnson is now a retired boxer enjoying some time on the beach, right?
Usually, lighter fighters are the ones who will fight many years, but Johnson never had a fight below 150 pounds and is still fighting!
The Road Warrior has been a decent fighter throughout his career, but he should definitely think about throwing in the towel. His best days are far behind him.
He lost five of his last nine fights and looked horrible last November versus a younger Lucian Bute.
Let’s be honest here: Since his Bernard Hopkins fight in 1997, Johnson is 19-16-2, which includes two wins against opponents with a record below .500. In brief, he’s 17-16-2 against opponents with a record above .500.
Johnson has never feared anyone and jumped in the ring with some of the best fighters of his era. He deserves a lot of praise for it.
Nevertheless, his last fight vs. Bute was a real joke, and it’s time for him to leave boxing.
