In the long list of odd things Chad Johnson has done, even this ranks near the top.

Through the years, Chad Johnson has been on the verge of taking on some unique athletic endeavors. He has contemplated countless NFL comebacks, mulled over a return to football as a kicker in the XFL and now is moving towards finally making his boxing debut.

After over a decade of waiting, Johnson will take part in an undercard fight before the upcoming June 6th duel between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. and YouTube celebrity Logan Paul.

The news of Johnson’s big battle, which was reported by ESPN, says that the wide receiver will “likely fight in a 4 or 6 round match against a celebrity or fellow athlete from outside the professional boxing ranks.” Nicknaming himself “Sweet Feet Johnson”, the 43-yeard old, six-time NFL pro-bowler is ready to “go in there and do what I do best.”

We figured we’d have some fun with this - as Chad is - and ask you the people if you’d watch the fight. Let us know below as the poll is open until Friday (May 7th) at midnight.
