“[The feeling is] similar to that of a football game,” said Johnson, who spent most of his NFL career with the Bengals (2001-2010), prior to the fight in a NY Post interview.
“Yes, I’m scared. I [was] scared before every football game. Any competitive event before you go into it, there’s a sense of nervousness and fear, it’s supposed to be,” he said, noting that his fear doesn’t outweigh his desire to step into the ring with Maxwell.
“[I’m] not literally scared to the point where, ‘I don’t want to do this,’ but yes, scared, of course. There’s just nervousness, butterflies — it just comes with anything that you do competitive-wise.
“I’m outside of my element. It’s something new for me, something I’ve never done before to this magnitude. Obviously I’ve been in the ring [before], I’ve sparred for years, but now, it’s the real deal. People are watching.”
