Jamaica’s world-rated light heavyweight Glen Johnson warned reigning World Boxing Council champion Chad Dawson to expect a huge fight in their title contest in April.

Johnson will challenge Dawson on April 2 in Tampa, Florida in a major Showtime Championship Boxing television event.

25 year old Dawson is boasting a fine record of 25 victories, no defeats with 17 knockouts.
