He captured his first professional title in August 2023, defeating Harry Armstrong in seven rounds to claim the vacant Southern Area heavyweight belt on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs. Robert Helenius at The O2. His accomplishments earned him the 2023 Best Young Boxer of the Year award from the prestigious Boxing Writers’ Club.

Fisher continued to build momentum in 2024, making a statement with a first-round knockout of Dmytro Bezuz on his U.S. debut at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Now, Fisher is set for his biggest challenge yet against Alen Babic, aiming to solidify his heavyweight ranking and become a future contender.

The Savage: Alen Babic

Alen Babic, nicknamed "The Savage," enters the ring with a formidable record of 12 wins, 11 by knockout, and one loss. The Croatian fighter made a name for himself with a destructive ten-fight knockout streak. Babic’s relentless aggression and punching power have earned him a reputation as one of the division’s most vicious competitors.

Babic faced his first setback against Poland’s undefeated Lukasz Rozanski in a bid for a junior title last year. Despite this loss, he bounced back with a six-round stoppage of Newcastle’s Steve Robinson earlier this year. Mentored by former world title challenger Dillian Whyte, Babic is known for his all-action style and unyielding determination.

The upcoming bout between Fisher and Babic promises to be a thrilling encounter. Fisher’s methodical approach and powerful punches will clash with Babic’s relentless pressure and knockout power. Both fighters have expressed confidence and determination ahead of the fight.

“I have no words other than I am locked in and ready for the hardest fight of my life,” said Fisher. Babic, known for his brash delivery, responded with characteristic bravado: “Johnny and his dad have definitely over-ordered this time in picking me for his next fight... I am going to enjoy teaching some very savage lessons.”

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport highlighted the significance of the fight: “The time has come for the step up for Johnny and his incredible support to have their own night in London, and what a fight to do it in. Johnny ‘The Romford Bull’ Fisher against Alen ‘The Savage’ Babic promises to be an explosive all-action heavyweight WAR that will have fans on the edge of their seats on July 6.”
