TARK, you are a daft old tart aren`t you? Aren`t you?

Yes you are. Yes you ARE, you big old daft old tart you.

COme here, come here, who wants their scraggyold belly rubbed, that’s right you do, right before Mork plunges his shaft between your quivering buttocks and rearranges your intestines to match the London tube map.

JE, I agree that is totally unknowable. Perhaps a Soveiet fighter or 3 would have been very dominant if it hadn’t been for the Iron Curtain or WW2 etc. The Klitschkos would have been greatin any era. Perhaps the late 1960s Ali would have beaten them but we will never know. They are both certainly top 10-15.

Yep, Johnson has something of the Joe Bugner, Jimmy Young and Greg Page about him!

Tony — The dirtly little secret about the heavyweight division is that it has always been thin. You’re right that way too many people assess this era is somewhat less than others, but I just can’t see too many champions or contenders from past eras punishing Wladimir Klitschko or his brother. One other key thing to consider is that heavyweights in the prior to the 90′s never faced anyone from eastern Europe in the professional ranks. Not even the greats like Louis, Marciano, Ali, Foreman, Frazier etc… can claim even a single title fight win over anyone from behind the Iron Curtain. While it is unknowable how it would have changed the face of heavyweight boxing, it is almost certain that things would’ve been somewhat different, just as it will be different when or if Cuban fighters routinely turn pro.

Rustybucket – BTW it is not disrespect to accurately assess the relative ranking of a pro fighter. In this everybody-gets-a-trophy world it is increasingly politically incorrect to even give a ranking, but in boxing the results in the ring give us reasons to make judgments. If we’re wrong it will be borne out in the ring.

I agree with Rusty. Certainly Chisora and Kingpin aren’t all time greats, but they may be as good as Bugner, Mildenberger, Roper, and a hell of a lot of other people who were contenders of their day. There is a tendency to downplay the talent of today but even in the HW high era of the 1970s, after the top 5 or so, the talent was thin then too.

Which world title are they credible contenders for? Neither came close to winning titles when they had their respective chances. Chisora was crushed by Haye since, and Johnson was clearly beaten by Hammer and Fury, and Hamer in a pseudo pro match in the Prizefighter tournament. Yes they are perhaps slightly above club status but not by much.

Way too much disrespect for fighters these days, Both these guys are NOT club level, They are contenders for a World Title.

Posted February 11, 2014 5:38 pm 


JE

The hype for what is essential as solid club fight is amazing but not unexpected. Neither Chisora or Johnson present the least bit of threat to either of the Klitschkos and won’t win a world title no matter the outcome of this bout. Nonethless, it is probably evenly matched and the outcome is at least not obvious. It could be a good fight if Johnson comes with the idea that he wants to win and not just survive. If he goes into a shell look for a repeat of his bout with Vitali Klitschko.

Kingpin is like Joe Bugner. He loses to guys he shouldn’t lose to. Bugner lost to guys like Middleton and Johnson lost to Hammer. They don’t KO too many people, but they hang in there against the best.

Oh please, can’t they just all punch themselves in their own chin and get KO’ed. Would put an end to the misery.

I agree with Farmboxer that Wilder choose Scott because he is not a big puncher and his loss to Chisora didn’t hurt but to say Scott will lay down is stupid. Scott will try to win because a guy who is 36-1 if he beats Wilder that puts him in for a big fight. He’ll try to win. We should find out a little more about Wilder. But I bet he blasts out Scott faster than Chisora.

True, if Chisora wins by stoppage that will be a real upset.

I like the way Chisora has got things on track last year and hope he can continue to improve, what he really needs now is more snap to his punches, as he’s not naturally heavyhanded.

the voice of reason

if chisora stops johnson he’ll make a believer of me cos the guy is VERY durable

Posted February 11, 2014 6:02 am 


Farmboxer

Johnson took this fight on short notice, but I doubt if Chisora can knock him out…………….however, Chisora had no problem knocking out Scott, that’s the reason that Wilder decided to fight Scott, a boxer without a chin, no stamina, punches like a woman………….Wilder knows that, plus Scott is his best friend, so, will Scott do Wilder a favor? Think about it………..

This will be a dreary fight… KJ won’t do a thing… Chisora will swing at air for the duration and be awarded a victory for shadow boxing and pushing.

Mr gav

If chisora wins we get fury chisora 2 if Johnson wins we get fury Johnson 2! So let’s hope chisora wins, Johnson fury 2 can’t be any worse than the first one can it?

at least johnson has got the right american name.

Blast out Johnson? Wouldn’t be surprised if Johnson wins this fight. A fit and well prepared Johnson is on a higher level than Chisora is in boxing terms. I’ll be surprised if Chisora wins at all, let alone blast out Johnson. Johnson has a very good long jab, and a bit of power to keep Chisora in check.

It can be a dangerous fight for Chisora…if…Kevin Johnson has trained well and comes to box with winning in mind, otherwise, no, Chisora will probably collect a dull decision. You never know though, with some of the referee’s doing Dereck’s home fights recently, they might DQ Kevin for hitting him!

Mr gav

If chisora goes for the knock out, he will find out he has not got the power,the stamina or skill to do so and may even get knocked out himself. For a fighter of chisoras limitation this is a dangerous fight. If he fights smart he can win easily but not excitingly. And seeing as though Johnson tko over Alex leapai he has enough power to tko a very tired chisora in the late rounds.

Posted February 10, 2014 3:24 pm

Not a chance Chisora gets Johnson out of there… people nicknamed him Safety Pin for a reason. If I were Chisora I’d just focus on winning in general coz KJ can be a tricky one if he comes in motivated.

Posted February 10, 2014 3:16 pm 


Joe

Chisora isn’t going to knock out Johnson. Johnsons defense is too good to get stopped but his offense is slow enough that he will probably lose on points

Posted February 10, 2014 3:07 pm

too bad Johnson never developed a good offense. he has been doing this long enough.

Yes, heavyweight boxing is great for getting the little ones off to sleep these days, I find.

are there any heavyweights today that dont hold a belt. lol.

Martin

Chisora is delusional if he thinks he can KO Johnson. He has never been stopped, and is one of the very few opponents that even Vitali couldn’t put away. In fact, he kept teasing Vitali in the last round, beckoning him to hit him harder. So if Vitali, with his 90% KO record, couldn’t so it, Chisora has no chance whatsoever. He may win the fight, but it will be dull, and there’ll be no “blasting out”.

Johnson has a lot of skills to be taken out that easy. Vitali could not do it I wonder if Chisora can do it. It will not be easy at all.
