by Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson: I wanted to let the folks at Eastside Boxing and the rest of the boxing world know that the Kingpin is back in the building. I signed my name on the dotted line to take on Odlanier Solis in a fight on the undercard of the Tarver-Mike Sheppard fight set for November 26, 2013 in Sunrise Fl. I expect a formal announcement at some point this week but I wanted to clear up some confusion out there about whether I was participating in Prizefighter again or in a possible fight with Christian Hammer.
I’m excited about fighting Solis right here in the U.S. and glad that he stepped up to the plate unlike some other heavyweights that are ducking me right now. They know who they are. I’m rejuvenated and in the best shape of my life and right now my focus is on Odlanier Solis, after I take care of business on November 26, 2013, we will see what’s what.
