GLEN JOHNSON DONATES ROBE & TRUNKS TO HALL
JANUARY 11, 2011 - Former IBF light heavyweight champion and current SHOWTIME Super Six World Boxing Classic participant Glen “Road Warrior” Johnson donated fight-worn boxing robe and trunks to the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
“We are really excited about Glen Johnson sending his robe and trunks to Canastota,” said Hall director Ed Brophy. “Fight fans from around the world who tour the Museum will enjoy seeing memorabilia from boxing's ‘Road Warrior.’”
The robe and trunks were worn by Johnson when he won a 12-round decision over Richard Hall on February 24, 2006 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL.
Born in Jamaica, Johnson lives and fights out of Miami, FL. During his career, he has wins over Eric Harding, Montell Griffin, Antonio Tarver and Roy Jones Jr. He defeated Clinton Woods for the IBF light heavyweight title in 2004. In 2010 Johnson replaced Mikkel Kessler in SHOWTIME’s Super Six World Boxing Classic and scored an 8th round TKO over Allan Green to advance to the semi-finals of the tournament. The 41-year old Johnson’s record stands at 51-14-2 (35 KOs).
The Hall of Fame extends a sincere thank you to Glen Johnson, his manager Henry Foster and Main Man Boxing Management representative Jude Kaldi for their generosity.
