REPORT: Former NFL WR Chad Johnson To Fight On Mayweather-Paul Undercard
2021 just got even crazier.
Former NFL star Chad Johnson is taking his talents to the boxing ring. “Ochocinco” will fight on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Logan Paul event on June 6.
“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,” Johnson said on the “I Am Athlete” podcast.
Johnson’s fight will likely be a four- or six-round exhibition against a yet-to-be-named opponent, according to ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe.
The 43-year-old spent the first 10 of his 11-year career with the Cincinnati Bengals as a six-time Pro Bowler.
He played for the New England Patriots in 2011 and did not make the Miami Dolphins’ roster in training camp in 2012.
