Johnson, 43, has attempted a wide range of athletic endeavors since retiring from football in 2017. Aside from boxing, the receiver has appeared at WWE events, competed on Dancing with the Stars, hosted a reality TV show called The Ultimate Catch, attempted Professional Bull Riding and tried his hand at soccer with Sporting Kansas City. Throughout his 14-year career in the NBA, the small forward racked up $414,276 in fines including three fights or near fights. It’s unclear how much money Barnes would need to step in the ring against Johnson, but there at least seems to be a conversation to be had between the two.
“I do box, but to be honest with you, like, it’s not something that I really want to jump into, to be honest with you,” Barnes said. “I mean, like, to me, I’m kind of past that stage of my life. But, you know, like I said, if it ever came across and the money was right, I’d consider it.” (Warning: NSFW language)
Barnes, 41, certainly isn’t afraid of confrontation. Former NBA star Matt Barnes told TMZ Sports he would consider stepping in against the former longtime Cincinnati Bengals wideout. He’s just not going to do it on the cheap.
