After Dinner Speaker, Johnny Nelson

Johnny " Ivanson " Nelson [1] (born 4 January 1967) is a former professional boxer from Sheffield, England. He was the WBO cruiserweight World Champion for over six years, having defeated Carl Thompson in 1999 and then successfully defended the title 13 times. He has also previously fought for the WBU & WBF Cruiserweight title which he won but then later relinquished. His fight record was 45 wins (29 by knockout), 12 losses and 2 draws.

Nelson has had a number of high profile fights and his 14th defence of his WBO cruiserweight title was scheduled to be against Welshman Enzo Maccarinelli on the undercard for the Joe Calzaghe versus Jeff Lacy WBO/IBF unification bout on 6 March 2006, but an injury picked up by Nelson forced the fight to be cancelled and Nelson announced his decision to retire from professional boxing a few months later on 22 September 2006..

Nelson is now a pundit for Sky Television. Since retirement he has spent some time working with young students taking them into prisons businesses and football clubs to show how the choices we make in life can effect the way we live.

Johnny is available for Sporting functions, Sportsmans dinners, after dinner speaking, corporate events, TV & Radio.
