is he ready for wladimir?
he's beaten some good journeymen like rogan, maddalone & firtha. he survived a scare vs the tough pajkic(although the fight was stopped way too early imo)& has a solid win vs chisora. he is talking klitschko & he hasn't even gotten past kevin johnson yet. kingpin is big, has a great jab & can box. he is like a big version of chris byrd. he was nowhere near ready to fight a klitschko when he did but fury is not at that level yet so this will be a tough fight for fury. kingpin is defensive & can take a punch. i rate chisora higher then kingpin due to level of opposition but a win over johnson is a great step forward but i still don't think he is ready. fury can take out all the C+ level fighters & a win over kingpin would add a 2nd B level fringe contender to his resume but i think he needs a win over a legit top contender like pulev, helenius, adamek, haye or arreola before i will actually consider him ready. povetkin, haye, helenius, pulev are the top contenders while arreola & adamek are just outside the door. i'm not sure fury beats any of them. until he does i won't lift him past B level fringe contender status.
