He sees it as a fight-of-the-year contender and values entertaining the fans as a crucial aspect of his boxing career.
Despite coming close to winning world-title fights, this being his second attempt, Johnson remains determined to become a world champion eventually.
He sees these experiences as part of his education and believes that, once he reaches the top, he will stay there, having learned valuable lessons along the way.
