A Holiday Wish List From Glen Johnson

Dear Santa, Its that time of year again, when I know youre getting tons and tons of letters from people around the world asking for gifts this Holiday season. Ive got to be honest with you though; with the exception of a horrible injustice done to me in Florida on April 12th, Ive had a great year. I knocked out Hugo Pineda and Aaron Norwood, was crowned peoples champion again after the robbery against Chad Dawson, and Ive got good friends and a great team around me..

Considering that Santa, I truly believe its better to give than to receive, so Id like you to give the following to my friend Joe Calzaghe.

Some old calendars to remind him of the number of times hes pulled out of fights with me in the past. Hint its more than once.

Some gold polish so he can shine up his championship belts and keep them shiny in case he decides to put them at risk against me.

A pack of tissues to dry his tears when he talks about the decline of boxing, when he can fight me and help revive the passion in our sport.

A DSL or cable internet connection so he can read what boxing fans are saying about the fight they really want to see.

A DVD copy of Dawson vs Tarver I so he can replay it and see what will happen in Dawson-Tarver II in March.

Running shoes so he can be comfortable whether he jogs off into the sunset or trains for his fight with me.

A new suit, hat, and sunglasses The suit and hat to wear at our preflight press conference, and the sun glasses for the post fight press conference.

A trans-atlantic phone card so he doesnt have the pay for the call when he contacts my promoter, Seminole Warriors Boxing, to tell them that hes going to take this fight.

Good Luck In his new career, if he decides not to fight me, as there really is no one else for him to fight.

Come on Joe, lets do this for the sport, and lets leave boxing with a classic fight that your fans in Wales will never forget.

Merry Christmas,

Glen Johnson
The Peoples Light Heavyweight Champ
