In a few weeks on June 6, Floyd Mayweather will face off in a boxing match with YouTube star Logan Paul. While there will be other fights happening on the undercard of that matchup, there's one other celebrity fight that didn't come together for that night.

Former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson was in talks to fight former Bengals teammate Pacman Jones until Johnson refused to fight the ex-NFL star cornerback.

It's not immediately known why Johnson backed away from fighting Jones. Could it have been their friendship? Or Johnson not wanting to fight someone who has been known to hold his own in his fair share of, let's call them public altercations?

Either way, the fight doesn't seem to be happening anymore. Johnson has already agreed to a contract to fight on the undercard, but his opponent is still to be determined. It is expected to be another celebrity or athlete, so it will be interesting to see what type of name recognition fight promoters are able to land this close to fight night.
