glen johnson's still a champion in my book

he's one of the classiest guys in boxing. he took modest talent and turned it into one hell of a professional career.

he even appeared to step away from the game at exactly the right moment. he was still being competitive in his fights with bute and froch. the bute fight is when he really started to look faded, though

once he lost to a kid who was never going to be world class he called it a career.

i'm sure he's made plenty of money to live comfortably. he was just an honest boxer.

I would like to buy Mr Johnson a beer. Years ago I had his managers number (Henry Foster I think his name was). Anyone know how to get in touch with him now?

Uhm... Johnson fought Ottke in 1999. And lost.

http://boxrec.com/media/index.php?title=Fight:13586

He seems to have forgotten that fight or does he not want to remember it?

Hopkins was a beast in his prime. By the time he fought Tito he was already on the down side of his physical abilities as a man. Glen fought him when he was at his peak and took a beating for it. Props to Glen for always fighting with heart and making entertaining fights, a true warrior.

I agree with him, Branco was the worst definitely, just awful. Also they mixed up something with fighting Ottke, he fought this guy. I think the guy who wrote it get confused, Glen probably said Calzaghe as I know there were some talks about this fight when Joe was planning to move up to Light Heavyweight.
I wish they could make that "Best I've faced" interview with Glen, I'm big fan of this series from The Ring.
And at the end, great career Glen!

Yeah i think he meant Calzaghe, But that shows people how tuff Hopkins is, the man has been in the game for opver 20 years and just lost a decision to Chad Dawson a fighter almost 20 years his junior,

for him to say he was never hurt in his career like he was against hopkins speaks volumes of how good bhop was in those days.

and yeah obviously he was talking about calzaghe. joe ducked him hard.
