New York – This past Friday on ShoBox: The New Generation, the still undefeated Kevin Johnson (16-0-1, 6 KOs) earned the moniker “The Great American Hope” by dismantling contender Damian “Bolo” Wills (22-2-1, 16 KO’s) in what has to be the most dominating performance displayed by any young American Heavyweight prospect.
From the opening bell, Wills came out attacking with ferocity pushing Johnson back to the ropes with the hopes of taking away Johnson’s key weapon—the jab. What happened afterwards had everyone in attendance doing “oohs and ahhs”. Johnson unleashed a jaw dropping arsenal of punches including uppercuts, left hooks, and straight rights—every punch delivered with precision accuracy to Wills face.

In a recent release heavyweight Malik Scott claimed that Star Boxing’s undefeated heavyweight Kevin “KingPin” Johnson turned down a fight with Scott. It also claimed that Johnson made outrageous financial demands. Well allow us to retort.
“I’ve been authorized by Star Boxing CEO Joe DeGuardia to offer Malik Scott double of what they offered Kevin Johnson to make the fight” stated Star Boxing matchmaker Ron Katz. “The offer is also open to other Goossen Tutor heavyweights Eddie Chambers, Dominick Guinn, and Chris Arreola.”
“I’ll be more than happy to add an “L” to any of Goossen’s heavyweights” stated Johnson. “Just contact my promoter, Joe DeGuardia, sign the contract and we’ll handle our business in the ring.”
Johnson’s next ring appearance comes on Sunday April 22nd at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. Star Boxing would be happy to pencil in Malik Scott as Johnson’s opponent.
