Chad Johnson vs. Brian Maxwell fight date, time, pay-per-view price and more to watch Ochocinco’s boxing debut
For the first time in his career, Chad Johnson will step into the ring.
The former NFL player and Bengals star, once known as Chad Ochocinco, will face off in a boxing match against Brian Maxwell. As a member of Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul undercard, Johnson’s presence will bring another celebrity into the fold of this star-studded event.
Johnson has never boxed before and called his fight with Maxwell “one-of-a-kind” in a recent interview.
“I never thought of getting in the ring,” Johnson said, by SBNation.com. “I never thought there would be an opportunity to do it. But I love boxing. I am friends with all boxers because I love and study all of this.
“I didn’t expect something like this to happen. When Floyd called, the first thing I wanted to know was how long I had to prepare. Once I knew I had enough time to be like myself in there, I knew I could be successful.
Indeed, Johnson prepared and at one point trained with the Charlo Brothers for his fight against Maxwell. Maxwell is 0-3 in his boxing career, but is 2-2 in MMA bouts. He clearly has the upper hand over his opponent from an experience standpoint, but will Johnson be able to make the fight interesting?
