Glen Johnson enjoyed knocking out a pound-for-pound prince so much that he's already planning on repeating the feat.

Following on from his destruction of Roy Jones Junior at the FedEx Forum here at the weekend, Johnson said he'd welcome the chance of setting the record straight with undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins in a catch-weight fight.

Johnson was beaten (legitimately, for once) in 11 rounds by the brilliant Bernard in a July 1997 clash for the IBF middleweight title. Johnson told me earlier this year: "Everything I tried he could shut it down. I can say honestly I have never experienced anything in boxing like what Bernard did. He knew too much. He's a great fighter and I didn't know enough back then. It's no disgrace to lose in a fight like that."
