Johnson To Seek Advice From Fury on Beating Chisora
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

American heavyweight Kevin Johnson hopes victory over Dereck Chisora will set-up a rematch with Tyson Fury.

Johnson, who lost on points against Fury in 2012, has been called in as a late replacement to face Chisora at the Copper Box Arena in London.

Chisora is another man chasing a return bout with Fury, having also lost a verdict against him, and is expected to battle his British rival again in the summer.

But the Atlanta man is determined to ruin these plans and expects to earn another crack at Fury for himself, if he claims an upset win over Chisora.

He told "A win over Chisora puts me back in there and hopefully I can get another fight with Tyson instead.

"I'm looking to speak to Peter Fury and Tyson about replacing Chisora in the summer once I take him out on Saturday night.

"Since I was only given eight days notice the first time, I think I deserve another chance. I just need to prove it against Chisora first."

Johnson is on friendly terms with Fury after they shared the ring and will ask his former foe for advice on how to defeat Chisora.

I expect Chisora to win purely on activity. But Johnson is by far the better boxer. But let's not kid ourselves though, regardless of whatever Frank Warren is going on about, Chisora isn't a great or even a good fighter.

Johnson is a live underdog for this fight. He’d be the biggest and best name on Chisora’s official resume, to this point (Helenius was a better unofficial win). Chisora just beat 3 solid B level fighters, top 50ish guys, but did struggle a bit in each match. Johnson is better than any of them and...

:pat: Advice part 1: You have to throw a punch to have a chance to beat somebody in boxing. Chisora 12 round shutout.

Johnson has one of the best jabs in the division but once chisora finds a way to avoid it he will push him back cause johnson doesnt throw much more after... But still johnson is slippery. chisora will have a hard time hitting him flush

[QUOTE=MrFynest]Advice on how to beat Chisora? That's simple. Don't fight him in his hometown where the ref will award him a hometown stoppage.[/QUOTE] One incident. Chisora has acquitted himself well in the field IMO, always giving everything he has, even when outgunned. (Except, ironically e...
