Peter Fury: After Johnson, Tyson Ready For Klitschkos

London - TYSON Fury will make the world sit up and take notice of his world title credentials when he disposes of hard punching American Kevin Kingpin Johnson on December 1 at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, according to uncle and coach Peter Fury.

Uncle Peter says Tyson has never been in better condition ahead of the biggest test of his career when he faces former World heavyweight title challenger Johnson who went the distance with WBC World heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in 2009.

In the past 24-year-old Tyson has been criticised over his condition but with a world title shot within his sights in 2013 and Johnson a major obstacle standing in the way he is now in peak condition for the Channel 5 televised showdown.

Peter Fury commented: “Johnson is a world class fighter, this is no longer domestic level fighters, he’s a couple of steps up from anyone Tyson has ever fought before. He’s a strong guy with his own world title aspirations so Tyson has to be ready for a hard night.

“And he couldn’t be in better shape. He has had great sparring and I think a lot of people are going to be shocked by just how good he looks and the performance he gives. It’s going to be a world-class performance and every other fighter in the heavyweight division will see that.

“I have been very pleased with the way Tyson has dedicated himself and after beating Johnson he will be ready for Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko or anyone else for that matter. 2013 is going to be a huge year for Tyson, he’s the best heavyweight in the world right now.

“We’re looking forward to going to Belfast, the fans there have always given Tyson a great reception and they are going to see a great fight between two world class heavyweights with Tyson coming out on top.”

Green K Andrew, well said. Honestly I think Kevin Johnson's pretty sh*t personally, this will prove very little. Either Klitschko brother would make a mockery of all the hype surrounding Fury. Careful what you wish for Uncle Pete ;)
