Fury decisions Johnson in one-sided fight
By Bill Phanco: Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (20-0, 14 KO’s) stayed unbeaten with a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision over American Kevin Johnson (28-3-1, 13 KO’s) at the Odyssey Arena, in Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. The final judges’ scores were 119-110, 119-108 and 119-108.
Fury lost a point in the 7th for hitting on the break, and he was warned a number of times in the fight for throwing rabbit punches. After the fight Fury said that he didn’t try for a knockout because he had seen how WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko had tried and failed to KO Johnson in their fight in 2009. It did look like Fury was trying to KO Johnson but he simply lacked the power to get the job done.
Johnson looked like he’s really aged a lot since the Vitali fight. He was barely throwing any punches, and wasn’t even using his jab all that much. Johnson just looked a tired old fighter much older than his 33 years.
When Johnson did throw his right hands he looked dangerous and you have to wonder what a young Johnson would have done against Fury tonight.
Fury threw a lot of punches in every round, but they just looked like weak slapping punches. It was obviously punishing for Johnson to take the shots, but if he had a little power and a lot more youth going for him he’d have given Fury problems.
As good as Fury looked, he’ll be in trouble if he fights one of the Klitschko brothers because he doesn’t have the power to compete and he has a bad habit of turning his head sideways when a big punch is coming his way.
