  • Description

    British Heavyweight Champion, Bunny Johnson, appears to be unaffected by the recent decision by European title holder, Joe Bugner, to relinquish the championship.

    On Friday (26 September), Johnson was training as usual, this time to defend his own title against Richard Dunn in London next week (30 September).

    However, the decision by Bugner may add some extra interest to the fight as the winner will probably be chosen to fight Belgian Champion Jean-Pierre Coopman for the now vacant European Heavyweight title.

    Bugner was due to meet Coopman in a title match in Antwerp on 4 October this year.

    Johnson said he has thought of the possibility of taking the European title but added, "First things first; I have to beat Dunn on Tuesday. After that, I'll just wait and see what happens."
