Chad Johnson is the latest celebrity to enter the boxing game. Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson is ready to box it out. The former Cincinnati Bengals star has agreed to an exhibition boxing match as part of the undercard for next month’s bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Logan Paul, according to ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe.

“It’s likely to be a four- or six-round exhibition bout and the opponent has not been finalized yet. The expectation is Johnson, 43, will face another celebrity or athlete rather than a pro boxer.”

Johnson first discussed the exhibition bout on the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast Monday with former NFL players Brandon Marshall, Channing Crowder and Fred Taylor.

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