Overall, this was a big step forward for Fury's development. A world class operator should beat Kevin Johnson without much struggle, but KJ will beat the lesser guys.

Tyson's starting to look more and more like a legit heavyweight every time out. It's clear he's putting the work in to get better. I'd like to see him in with a top 10 caliber fighter next.

That isn't really true anymore.

The efforts that Johnson put in against Tor Hamer and Tyson Fury wouldn't even be enough to get a hometown decision against a Zack Page in Atlanta. He doesn't have anything to offer anymore.

That's a good point.

- But it doesn't really change the fact that Fury still has huge holes in his defense. I guess the positive thing is that this is one of the skills that can be vastly improved with proper training, and Fury is still young.

But I don't see him changing how he throws (telegraphs) that right, and that's a big flaw.
