The pay-per-view event begins at 8 p.m. with Miami resident and former NFL star Chad Johnson making his boxing debut against versatile fighter Brian Maxwell.

Johnson has been working out with boxing champions Jermall and Jermell Charlo for several weeks to prepare for the special exhibition.

“I’m out of my element, so of course I’m approaching this fight humbly,” Johnson said Friday at a press conference. “He’s coming to knock my head off. Football is something I did all my life, that’s why I walked the way I did. I can’t be arrogant and take this fight lightly.”

Despite the question “Who is Brian Maxwell?” trending on social media, Maxwell says everyone will know who he is after stepping into the ring with Johnson.

“I’ve followed this man since day one,” Maxwell said in a press release. “I know his every move.”

During a recent phone call between the two fighters, Maxwell says he told Johnson that he was a fan.

“I’ve modeled myself after him and it’s like fighting myself. I’m going to be humble about this and we are going to put on a show for everyone.
