Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson recently made a special announcement, noting he’s fighting on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul bout.
The former NFL star said, “So Leonard Ellerbe, Floyd's manager, hit me up like 'hey I got an opportunity for you.' Floyd is fighting June 6th, at the Hard Rock, you can make a cool million and do a few rounds.' It's something I really couldn't pass up. I could pass it up but why not? Everything in life I'm good at, besides golf. I called Ellerbe back and said, let's do this."
At the time of the announcement, Ochocinco noted he didn’t know who he was facing but said, “it don’t matter.” Since then, Johnson took to Twitter to reveal that he will be boxing against Brian Maxwell, who is an MMA fighter. The fight between Ochocinco and Maxwell is set to take place on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
