Re: That old cliché that fans from a certain neck of the woods 'know their boxing'
It was a bit of a snoozefest. Even the ref had a word with them at the start of round 9 or 10, telling them that they were there to box.
It was frustrating as Fury would throw a couple of shots and then walk away, instead of trying to engage more in the fight and build on the previous good work that he had done. Smart boxing or jsut being too tentative? Johnson isn't the most exciting boxer and it was always likely that he would go further and further into his shell as Fury racked up the rounds.
Johnson was apparently going to blast him out late by drawing Fury onto him-both men referred to this in their interviews. Johnson isn't a huge puncher and barely landed anything of note, so there was almost literally no chance of this happening. He was there just to survive basically and thats what he did.
Disciplined from Fury. 4/5
