TITLE SHOT

Callum Johnson heads Stateside looking to become latest British world champion – and it’s live on talkSPORT

Callum Johnson is out to become Britain’s next world champion.

‘The One’ faces light-heavyweight champ Artur Beterbiev in Chicago, a week after his gym-mate Callum Smith defeated George Groves to grab his own world title belt.

Beterbiev is making the first defence of his crown and has a glittering amateur career behind him, which saw him win two World and one European Championships.

The Russian is a fearsome competitor, knocking out Enrico Kölling last November in the final round of their California scrap to take the IBF strap.
