Four weeks from today, Floyd Mayweather will fight Logan Paul at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. A couple of one-time NFL teammates may have met on the undercard.

Former Bengals receiver Chad Johnson (pictured at the recent press conference touting the fight) and former Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones were in talks to fight, per a source with knowledge of the situation. However, it’s currently not happening

Per the source, Johnson — who has agreed to be on the card — flatly refused to fight Jones.

Jones could end up on the card, but fighting someone other than Johnson. Unless Johnson has a change of heart. Otherwise, both former NFL players would end up fighting separate opponents in the Mayweather-Paul undercard.

  1. People…. please stop with this Circus of the Stars nonsense. Just because pay per view receipts show the public are willing to pay to see a few clowns throwing and receiving punches doesn’t mean everyone should don makeup in front of a camera.

  2. If this is anything like Mark Gastineau, fans should be careful about wagering on fights involving either of these two.

  3. Is it possible to cheer for everyone to lose? That’s a whole lot of unlikeable people on that card.

  4. I have to admit that I’d like to see these folks punching each other. Hard and often please.
