Johnson is not that good, Fury should comfortably win this.

Everyone seems to be critising Johnson as a fury opponent, but half think kingpin will win it?

Unbeaten Fury to face heavyweight test against 'Kingpin' Johnson in Belfast
Tyson Fury will take another step towards challenging for a world title when he tackles American Kevin Johnson in Belfast on December 1.
Johnson went the distance with WBC world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko three years ago with his only other defeat coming in the Prizefighter tournament earlier this year.
Unbeaten Fury had hoped to fight Denis Boytsov next month but the Russian withdrew, explaining he needed more time to prepare.

True test: Tyson Fury (left) will face Kevin Johnson in Belfast
'Johnson is just the kind of opponent that I want at this stage of my career,' Fury said. 'We needed a world class fighter and we have got one and when I take him apart the world will sit up and take notice.
'Iím not going around getting opponents out of graveyards, fighting guys well past their best like some other heavyweights in Britain, Iím taking on Kevin Johnson who has fought for a major world title and been the distance with Vitali Klitschko.
'I am getting closer to a shot at Klitschko myself and Iím going to show Vitali why he has to fight me because when I do a number on Johnson and get him out of there Iíll have done a better job than Vitali did on him.
'Iím really looking forward to fighting again in Belfast, the support I get there is great and to bring such a big fight there is terrific for the fans. Johnson is going to be tough, heís a hard man but Iíll be in the best shape of my life. The fans can expect fireworks, thatís for sure.'

Challenge: Johnson went the distance with Vitali Klitschko in 2009
Promoter Mick Hennessy says Johnson is going to be the perfect world class test for Fury at this stage of his career.
'Kevin Johnson has been there and done it and he wants another shot at the world title and he sees Tyson as the route to that, thatís why he has taken the fight,' commented Hennessy.
'Heís a very dangerous opponent, heís a clever boxer, heís never been stopped and he can punch so Tyson has his work cut out. But I believe that Tyson is the best heavyweight in the world and heíll show that again with the way he takes care of Johnson.
'Johnson has been asking for this fight for a long time and we have granted his wish unlike a lot of other fighters who have avoided him as he is a very dangerous fighter over 12 rounds.'

On the up: Tyson Fury
Former world heavyweight title challenger Johnson is coming to Belfast full of confidence with his sights set on railroading Furyís world title aspirations.
'I'm excited about the opportunity to step into the ring with Tyson Fury on December 1, in Belfast,' he said. 'It's a fight that I've been looking to make for a long time. It's going to be the best American fighter against the best fighter in the UK.
'I give Tyson all the credit in the world for stepping up to the plate and taking the fight. This is the biggest fight of my career since my world title fight against Vitali Klitschko in 2009 and I look forward to giving the fans what they deserve, an action packed, explosive and exciting fight.
'Tyson is a helluva fighter but he's never seen anything like the 'Kingpin' up close and personal. I'm on a mission to claim the heavyweight title and Tyson Fury is in my way.
'I'm not Derek Chisora or Neven Pajkic. I'm the real deal and Tyson will find that out on December 1. Don't blink, its going to be a short night.'

step-up for Fury, this one

however, if KJ turns up just to survive like he did against Vitali, it's going to be a boring as **** decision

Kingpin to win this, I like fury but his defence is shocking and he's been asking for some time now to get beat, kingpin via late stoppage

I think Fury's ability to move, his range and variety and intensity will trouble Kingpin. You've got to move your feet, keep him offset and the fact Fury's willing to let shots go in bunches and from different levels i see him overwhelming Kingpin.
