Johnson, who is 43-years-old and a six-time NFL pro bowler, had no professional experience in the sport of boxing ahead of tonight’s contest. Despite being a relative newcomer to the sweet science, the former Cincinnati Bengal was confident he would have a good showing this evening.

“Everything in life I’m good at outside of golf,” Chad Johnson said. “June 6, ‘Sweet Feet Johnson’ is going to go in there and do what I do best.”

“Man, I’m still in shock that they put my name in the hat for this fight. I don’t know how my name came about or who said what,” Maxwell said on Just Scrap Radio on BJPENN.com. “But, I got the call and I had to take the opportunity… I knew nothing about it until I was on Instagram and there was a post about him fighting. I didn’t think anything of it and then boom, here we are.”
