SecondsOut Radio: Glen Johnson, Calzaghe-Hopkins Controversy 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman

  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie
    Goldman begins by reviewing the controversial split decision win by Joe Calzaghe (45-0, 32 KOs) over Bernard Hopkins (48-5, 32 KOs) this past Saturday night, April 19, in Las Vegas. In particular, boxing's subjective scoring system is discussed.

    That scoring system was also the focus of even greater controversy on April 12, when WBC light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (26-0, 17 KOs) won a highly-disputed unanimous decision over former world champion Glen Johnson (47-12-2, 32 KOs) in Tampa, Florida. This decision was roundly booed by the fans in the St. Pete Times Forum. After the fight, American viewers watching on Showtime were asked to select which fighter impressed them the most on this televised card, which also included the unanimous decision win by Antonio Tarver (27-4, 19 KOs) over Clinton Woods (41-4-1, 24 KOs) to capture the IBF light heavyweight belt. Eighty percent selected Glen Johnson.

    We had a chance this past week to speak about this fight at length with Glen Johnson. He also has posted a remarkable video interview about this fight on YouTube and the site of his promoter, Seminole Warriors Boxing.
