ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – John “The Magician” Dodson is coming off another loss to current Flyweight Champion, Demetrious Johnson, in September.
Dodson has decided to make the weight increase and make the move to 135 pounds and rejoin the Bantamweight division.
Dodson will fight Manny Gamburyan on April 16. Gamburyan is riding a two fight win streak is a fighter that has come down a weight class.
This could play a major obstacle for Dodson, as he is bigger and stronger than most fighters that he has fought, but Dodson doesn’t seem worried.
“I want to show everyone that no matter what weight class that I am going to or am going to be in, I am going to dominate and push the pace and make sure I can knock out everybody with my beautiful fashion that I do every time,” said Dodson.
