Former champion Glen Johnson (51-15-2, 35KOs) is training hard in camp for his scheduled bout with Lucian Bute (29-0, 24KOs), the IBF's beltholder at super middleweight, which is scheduled for November 5th at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec.  Johnson recently appeared on BoxingScene.com's official audio show - "The Boxing Lab" - and discussed several topics.

BoxingScene.com: Johnson's Thoughts on a Possible Return To Light Heavyweight

I don't plan on returning to 175 any time soon. I'm going to stay at 168 for a while. 168 has a lot of life right and there are a lot of good fights for me at 168. There is really nothing for me at 175, besides a fight with Bernard Hopkins, but everything else I've already done. I'm glad that I can still make this weight and feel fantastic.

BoxingScene.com: Johnson's Thoughts on The Outcome of Bernard Hopkins-Chad Dawson

I was disappointed. Coming off the last pay-per-view show [Mayweather-Ortiz], I was disappointed. People didn't get to see a real fight. I know the average boxing fan, I can only imagine the criticisms that they have going on. As far as the incident itself. You can say Dawson shoved him, I don't know if that's a dirty move or not. I guess it all depends on the person. It is what it is. I expected to see a fight between two great warriors and it ended up being what it is.

BoxingScene.com: Johnson's Thoughts on Being Bute's Toughest Opponent.

No doubt, I certainly believe that. Anybody that I step in the ring with, I'm going to be their toughest challenge because I have a style where a lot of fighters don't fight like me, so a lot of fighters haven't fought someone like me. It's always going to be a tough challenge [for the opponent].

The only way to beat Johnson is too have a higher workrate then him even if it means sacraficing power to get more speed like with froch plus you gotta have a damn good chin. Terrible fight for bite hes gonna get hurt. I'd like to see Johnson beat the **** outta pascal too.

who does the Bscene interviews for the radio show? [QUOTE=hitmanjosh]Glen has a better shot than people think. For one Bute can be hit and hurt and he's not the boxer Froch is so that tells me this will be a better fight. The only thing is that Glen's age can show up at any moment because of h...

Glen has a better shot than people think. For one Bute can be hit and hurt and he's not the boxer Froch is so that tells me this will be a better fight. The only thing is that Glen's age can show up at any moment because of his style and the battles he's been in but I wouldn't count him out just ...

Gotta love glen. His attitude is great and he always ready and ducks no one. These throw back fighters are getting more and more rare. He takes a beating though Bute in a 12 rd ud
