DiBella: "We want guys like Morales and Freitas and my phone's been ringing already!"
Moments ago in Milan, Italy, Leavander Johnson captured the vacant IBF lightweight title with a sixth round TKO over Steffano Zoff. Johnson had Zoff wobbling all over the ring, forcing the referee to stop the fight! "Leavander Johnson is a guy who has paid his dues. He's been a professional his whole career and he's worked his butt off for this title. He did what he was supposed to do and I'm proud of him. We're looking for fights like Erik Morales and Acelino Freitas and I've already gotten some phone calls. He's a guy who's always believed in himself. He went to Italy and he did what he had to do," said an elated Lou DiBella, Johnson's promoter. REMEMBER WHERE YOU HEARD IT FIRST! (5:45 PM ET)
