Well folks this is starting to reach comical levels. Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson (née Ochocinco) will be fighting on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather-Logan Paul fight card. Mayweather’s promotion team confirmed the fight with ESPN on Monday afternoon.
Johnson will fight another athlete or a celebrity in a four or six round exhibition according to ESPN.
Johnson talked about his upcoming tilt on the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast with Brandon Marshall, Channing Crowder, and Fred Taylor:
“Everything in life I’m good at outside of golf. June 6, ‘Sweet Feet Johnson’ is going to go in there and do what I do best”Chad Johnson via “I AM ATHLETE” podcast
So…he’s going to go catch some footballs?
It’s truly amazing that Showtime Boxing is fully embracing the freak show fights. The card takes place June 6 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
