Kevin Johnson: I’ll definitely be a champ You were considered a favorite to win the Prizefighter tournament, but eventually you lost the final bout. What were the reasons your misfortune?
Kevin Johnson: I lost because I’m not a time in time out kind of fighter, I’m not 3 round fighter, I’m the long haul type of guy that drowns you later!

BB: Do you think that you deservedly won the semi-final bout against Albert Sosnowski? Many people think that this was a controversial decision. Did you expect such a tough fight from the Pole?
KJ: Sosnowski was not a tough fight, having just 3 rounds to do the job was hard! I beat him the same way I lost , a fare decision ! I could of said anything after losing but I accept it and I’m gonging on with my career.

BB: Would you like to appear again in this kind of tournament? Many people think that short fight are not good for you, because you need at least 5-6 rounds to “wake up”.
KJ: My style doesn’t fit that tournament so I might not do it again.

BB: Tor Hamer eventually won the tournament. Do you think that he has a chance for a big career or it was just a one-time success?
KJ: For Tor , that really was a one-time success, because in a 8/10 or 12 round fight he won’t make it with me! You can hit and run all day but in those long round fights you’ll be caught n trapped.

BB: Recently there were rumors that you could face Tomasz Adamek on September 8th. Did you get an offer from his team?
KJ: Me and Adamek was supposed to fight numbers of times but his team always and I MEAN “ALWAYS ” found a way or reason to fight someone else!

BB: What is your plan for the near future? When will you back to the ring?
KJ: I’m getting ready for a huge 10 maybe 12 round fight and it’s gonna be a good one.

BB: Who is currently the best American heavyweight in your opinion? Tony Thompson was crushed by Wladimir twice, Chambers was beaten by Wladimir and Adamek? There are also young fighters like Seth Mitchell and Deontay Wilder.
KJ: The Best US fighter is the one who becomes IBF or WBC Champ , so let’s see who that will be in the next few months! I will definitely be a champ, and no one will stop me from getting there this time nor no one will stop me from becoming champ !

BB: Any closing thoughts?
KJ: To fans and readers, there’s a new and improved Kevin Johnson coming to town with one of the ” Best ” trainers in the sport who I’m so excited to be working with. He had all along the missing pieces to make me whole ! I’m just starting to work with him and I’ve seen and feel thee new success coming working with Thee One and Only Jeff Mayweather! Watch out for the new and improved me!
