So it's 'The Kingpin', Kevin Johnson. What does everyone think of Johnson as an opponent on three weeks notice?

LOL. I don't see how Price will benefit from fighting Skelton.

Grano is better than Maddalone, but not the step up Boystov would have been. Still, a good fight to watch on Ch 5 if that's who it is.

This is a good fight for Fury, Johnson is nothing special at all as we saw against Vitali and in Prizefighter but if Fury can dispatch him early then it makes a decent enough statement.

Something tells me Fury won't look good though. Johnson has little to offer but he does seem hard to look good against, he won't go out on his shield and will most likely put up little resistance and stay out of harms way, Fury boring UD.

A lot happier with this one (compared to Grano). Has Safetypin been training though? 3 weeks is not a lot of time.

Fury wins via activity!

I hope Johnson doesn't do nothing for the whole fight then start show boating with those pony "Ali shuffles" like he did against Vitali! That was truly embarrassing!

I just hope Johnson prepares well and gives Fury a run for his money. Good fight in my opinion.

I think Johnson could be quite a handful for Fury, this could be a decent fight

I totally agree. It's nice to see how Fury handle boxer like Kingpin.
