World Championship boxing is back in Hartford for the first time in 20 years. Undefeated, two-time light-heavyweight champion Chad Dawson and Glen Johnson will square off at the XL Center this November.
Glen Johnson, a Jamaican-born boxer, lost his most recent title attempt to Dawson in 2008. He retained his WBC light-heavyweight title with a hard-earned unanimous decision over Johnson. The win was controversial, because many felt the scoring of the fight was unfair.
Both Dawson and Johnson will be in Hartford on Wednesday to announce the fight, which will be held on Nov. 7 at 9:30 p.m.
