Earlier in the month, Johnson offered to step-in for the ill Shannon Briggs and face Sultan Ibragimov at Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately for boxing fans, Johnson’s offer went unanswered. But The Kingpin is still on the move in ‘07
“Johnson fought six-times in ’06, and he dominated everyone we’ve put in him with,” stated Star Boxing CEO Joe DeGuardia. “Johnson is a versatile fighter who’s on the cusp of becoming a world champion.”
“Shannon Briggs, Malik Scott, Sultan Ibragimov, Tye Fields - man I can beat any of these guys right now,” said Johnson—a man never at a loss for words. “I’ve been sparring with Alexander Povetkin and other world- class fighters—I’m always ready for a fight”
Johnson’s next ring appearance comes on Sunday April 22nd at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
