Nobody Knocks Out Glen Johnson, Unless Comedy's Involved

In this week's print edition of The Juice, I wrote about Glen Johnson, a veteran South Florida boxer who's spent most of his 15-year career facing off against the biggest names in the sport. Because he's not punching police officers, barking at a judge, or telling anyone he wants to eat their children, Johnson has spent most of his career in the shadows--despite giving Roy Jones Jr. the worst knockout of his career.

In this extra footage from New Times videographer Jacob Katel, Johnson is knocked out by a joke from his manager, Henry Foster. Foster is talking about a drug-induced car accident he was in on a bridge.
