Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Logan Paul Undercard: Who Will Chad Ochocinco Fight?
Four Potential Fights for Chad Ochocinco
Chad Ochocinco, formerly Chad Johnson, is going to fight on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul undercard, that much we know. What we don’t know is who exactly Chad Ochocinco will be fighting when the opening bell rings. Ochocinco is one of the best wideouts of his generation. He also famously ate McDonalds every day during his career and claimed it was a partial reason for his success.
There are a ton of rumors when it comes to who Chad Ochocinco will fight in his first boxing match, none of which have any fight experience (except one). But, when has that stopped the celebrity boxing world before?
So, as we prepare for Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul, why not take a look at some of the potential opponents for Chad Ochocinco come June 6?
Who Will Chad Ochocinco Fight?
There is no animosity here when it comes to Chad Ochocinco and Brandon Marshall. The two host a weekly video podcast called “I AM ATHLETE” alongside Fred Taylor and Channing Crowder, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see them in the ring against one another. Ever since a recent clip from the show went viral where Marshall can be seen screaming at Ochocinco, the fans have been curious about who would win in an Ochocinco vs. Marshall fight. Well, we might get our wish thanks to Chad Ochocinco being an addition to the already loaded Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul card.
The former NBA bad boy, who famously drove through the state of California to confront Derek Fisher, has also been rumored to be in the running to take on Chad Ochocinco. It’s not entirely certain if Barnes has boxed before, but we know he would bring a show against Ochocinco. Barnes, like Marshall, towers over Ochocinco at 6-foot-7 and 227 pounds. We’re not exactly sure that Chad Ochocinco vs. Matt Barnes would turn out well for the former wideout, but it would certainly be hilarious.
The former NBA player and Chad Ochcocinco are close friends, but they did go back and forth on twitter the other day when Young told Ochocinco he’d be willing to fight. Young hasn’t played in the NBA since 2018 and is notorious for being one of the funnier athletes around, like Ochocinco. If this one were to go down, I doubt we’d see any real punches connect. More likely, we’d get some sort of comedy stunt, which may be just what everyone is tuning in for.
Yes, that Andre Berto. The former welterweight champion of the world who also took on (and lost to) Floyd Mayweather Jr. Is Chad Ochocinco vs. Andre Berto likely? No, of course not. Chad would likely last less than a minute in the ring against a fighter of Berto’s talent. But, this feud seems to be genuine and dates back to 2009, when Ochcocinco was on “Hard Knocks” calling out Berto and begging for a fight. Like we said, it would end quickly, but it’s another name to keep an eye on.
