We ask a panel of boxing figures who they consider to be the best British light-heavyweight at the moment
Joshua Buatsi’s polished skills and consistency make me think he is at the top of the British light-heavies. A fight with Lyndon Arthur is needed before he moves up to world level.
Callum Johnson’s trainer
It’s got to be Callum Johnson. His record suggests that, the people that he’s fought. He’s been in with Beterbiev, he put him on the floor. He then had a good win against Seanie Monaghan. Last time out he had a good win against a tough opponent. Johnson on what he’s done, what he’s achieved.
Commonwealth Games winner
Probably the most competitive weight division in this country but I would currently choose Joshua Buatsi and he is destined to become a champion. Really good to see Callum Johnson back in the mix too, a real warrior.
Callum Johnson. His is the most impressive body of work in my opinion. Inactivity has been a curse but I think he’s ready to deliver on the talent he’s always had.
