Carl Johanneson is looking for revenge on July 13 when he steps into the ring with Leva Kirakosyan, who inflicted Johanneson's only loss in a British ring.
Johanneson first stepped up against the formidable Armenian in December 2004 and history shows Kirakosyan, 25-4 (16), gained one of his 16 stoppages by knocking Johanneson out in the first round.
Johanneson, 26-2 (18), knows he could have taken an easier route but being the fighting man that he is, he has asked promoter Frank Maloney for the opportunity to settle the score.
“I have never been so up for a fight before,” Johanneson said of this European super featherweight clash. “I had a few problems earlier this year which have been sorted now and I feel great.
“This fight will not be for the weak hearted. One of us will be asleep on the canvas before the fight is over.”
This intriguing contest is supported by an anticipated thriller between Tontcho Tontchev, 37-5 (21), and John Fewkes, 14-0 (2), of Sheffield.
Fewkes feels he has been overlooked by the top names but the undefeated 21 year old knows he will soon be fighting European rated boxers in a bid to claim a title.
