On Saturday, Dec. 18, undefeated junior middleweight prospect Chris Pearson (13-0, 10 KO’s) will return to the ring when he faces off with fellow unbeaten Eric “Baby Face” Johnson (11-0, 6 KO’s) inside of the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nev.

Pearson vs. Johnson will be part of a Premier Boxing Champions card televised by Spike TV, headlined by Cuba’s Rances Barthelemy and Russia’s Denis Shafikov squaring off for the vacant IBF lightweight title.

A native of Dayton, Oh., Pearson is signed to Mayweather Promotions and is no stranger to training inside of Floyd’s personal facility. However, lately he has spent most of his camps back home in Ohio.

The fight with Johnson represents an intriguing clash for Pearson but the confident 25-year old doesn’t seem concerned.

“That doesn’t mean anything,” said a grinning Pearson.

See you on the 18th. Check below for more from Pearson.
