furys easy handling of johnson proves it.
the early rounds slaughter by leapai of johnson took too much out of johnson. you cant take blows like that and not be damaged. alex was 2 seconds from stopping johnson. johnson was hurt bad and said after the fight..."that is the most brutal mother ****er ive ever fought".
just because johnson got the win, doesnt mean he didnt become damaged goods. the murderous punches alex rained down on johnson have taken their toll, like fury proved.
johnson won the fight, but he hit alex less. alex did more damage to johnson than johnson did to alex. on paper it says johnson won, but physically and mentally he lost, and alex has grown.
its a funny thing sports psycology. especially in boxing. you can become old overnight, like jones and fenech.
alex could fight johnson over and over. but johnson couldnt handle fighting alex over and over. he just couldnt take the bashing.
the ref should have stopped the fight and awarded the fight to alex, and saved johnson from the extra damage alex imposed on him.
leapai hits harder than any heavy in the world. the bashing johnson took was merciless. johnson lost something that day. alex found something. boxing is a brutal game. and thedamage big heavyweights do to eachothers brains and commitment cant be underestimated.
