Callum Johnson will return to the ring next month, it has been revealed.

The Boston light heavyweight will fight Serbian Marko Nikolic on Saturday, September 11.

Johnson (19-1) and Nikolic (27-1) will meet at London’s Copper Box Arena, with the fight screened live on BT Sport.

The 35-year-old former British and Commonwealth champ ended a frustrating two-year hiatus in April with a devastating second round round victory over Emil Markic.
