Kingpin Johnson calls out The Nightmare

Press Release: If you ask Kevin "Kingpin" Johnson, he would tell you he'd fight anyone that you put in front of him, and he wouldn't be lying. Since first turning pro on February 13, 2003, the Star Boxing prospect has been telling anyone who would listen he was destined to become the next great heavyweight champion. Now 21 wins later against 0 defeats, Johnson is willing to put everything on the line, including a very good friendship, by challenging fellow American heavyweight hopeful Chris "Nightmare" Arreola (26-0 with 23 KOs). Arreola last fought on November 29th on HBO against Travis Walker (28-2-1, 22KO) stopping Walker in the third round.

Johnson's promoter, Star Boxing CEO Joe DeGuardia said, "We think that Kevin is the best heavyweight in the world. On the other hand, Chris thinks he is the best and has his people telling him the same thing. Depending on who you talk to in the industry, one person will say Kevin is the best, another will say Chris is. So let's decide who actually is the best and have these two great heavyweight prospects fight each other, plain and simple," said "It would be a great fight for the fans, a great fight for the heavyweight division and a great fight for the U.S. The winner clearly cements themselves as THE best American heavyweight... and THE rightful challenger to the heavyweight champions out there."
