Following his very competitive fight with Chad Dawson for the Light Heavyweight belt, the WBC is keeping Glen Johnson as the number one contender.

The WBC now wants Chad to fight Interim-Champion Adrian Diaconu, and for Glen to fight an eliminator against second-ranked Silvio Branco, to decide who’ll take on the winner.

In his ring career, Gentleman Glen, who’s also known as the Road Warrior has lost to Bernard Hopkins, drawn, defeated and lost to Clinton Woods, KO’d Roy Jones Jr, and split-decisioned Antonio Tarver. But time is not on his side as he’s thirty-nine.

Glen’s Manager Henry Foster says that he’s confident that Glen will get another opportunity to fight for the title this year, but the likely way to it will be via a mandatory ruling, explaining: “Chad Dawson in no uncertain terms said that he didn’t want any part of Glen. We are hoping for a re-match, but the possibility exists that Dawson will go for bigger money if the WBC doesn’t mandate the re-match. But we don’t care who we fight, as long as we get an opportunity to fight for the title.”

Henry Foster also paid tribute to Chad's fighting heart against Glen commenting: “Chad is a twenty-five-year old guy who showed remarkable recovery ability. He took harder shots from Glen and stayed up than he took from guys like Eric Harding and Tomasz Ademek that put him down. So I give him props for standing up and taking a licking. But that’s about it, and in his heart he knows he lost the fight with Glen, and if he doesn’t give us a re-match, he can never really call himself a champion.”

He beat Dawson actully very easily walked him down and pushed the pace the whole fight. That was one of the worst decision I have seen in a while.

Either way he deserves a rematch.

No it was not. It was a close fight. I gave it to Dawson by 2 points. But Johnson does deserve a rematch

he definately deserves a match with a marquee name at light heavy. i don't see any of them willing to step up to the plate though. maybe byrd will take him on looking to make a statement.

Would either man fight different or would it be the same fight ?

and who would win the rematch

Badger
i think a rematch would pretty much be a carbon copy of the first fight. i'm inclined to think johnson brings the heat a little more and gets the win. then again, if dawson comes in better shape he may be able to finish stronger and beat johnson cleanly. either way the fight will close.....again.

Be careful Tommy because i know of some people that score holding and blocking punches with their head. "Cough RH cough RH" :cheeky4:
ha ha! dave with the sneaky right to liver!:laugh:
