Kevin has already proven himself as a “prospect”, an overused term in the sport of boxing these days” Halquist continued. Johnson, in his fourth pro fight, drew with Russian Timor Ibragimov (now 19-0-1) on ShoBox in June of 2004 and beat Robert Wiggins (19-3-1) in September of last year. “Not bad for a fighter who, in his entire career (amateur and professional) has only had twenty-three total fights” Halquist commented. The signing just happened in New York.
“I saw Kevin work out in the gym in New Jersey. He is a committed professional athlete and we couldn’t be more exited to have him on our team. To steal a quote from the late, great gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson, ‘We are paying for the ticket and taking the ride’. It’s a ride that will be fast and furious!” Halquist said.
