Leapai would have been considered top 50 when Kingpin stopped him.

Well he certainly wouldn't have been near the top end of the top 50 but he was just inside 45-50 somewhere for me. He was on a good streak beating Beck, Ding, Walker and Okello Peter. Taking most of those by big KO's too.

Then again, he's ranked all the way down at #32 in the WBC - Fury is #3 - but I'm now reading this could be a title eliminator to meet (or rematch) Vitali Klitschko.
I hate being right.

That comment smacked of a trolling bit of sport.
Well in any case, the 1:30 between rounds had to be pointed out one way or the other. And all you Fury nuthuggers better be ready to eat crow next week.

I can see a lot of people claiming this is what happened, and then a lot of people saying Fury was the effective aggressor and rightfully winning the majority of rounds.

a less skilled version of adamek vs chambers but not as convincing a performance by johnson as chambers had. fury will look just as sloppy but be slightly more effective and johnson will not land as often or as significantly as eddie did.

Fury should have this convincingly.

Afterwards people like Cableaddict, PrinceN and jeanpaulvalley will say Johnson was robbed and "schooled" fury because he slipped a few punches despite not throwing anything back

Vitali hadn't even turned pro at that age!!!!!
At 24 Vitali had already been a Pro Kickboxing World Champ and was a world class Amateur boxer.

Was that the age he got brutally ktfo by a British journeyman kickboxer?

Or the year he got busted for being on ROIDS?
