Tyson Fury v Kevin Johnson

About this programme

Tyson Fury v Kevin Johnson. Mark Pougatch presents coverage of the heavyweight bout staged at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, where both men will hope a victory leads to a world title shot. Fury remains undefeated in his career to date after claiming his 19th successive victory last time out with a fifth-round stoppage of veteran American Vinny Maddalone in July. Johnson, who goes by the ringname `Kingpin', previously fought for the WBC World title in 2009, and despite suffering the first defeat of his career managed to last the full 12-round distance against Vitali Klitschko. Despite not fighting anyone of great repute in the intervening years, tonight's bout should provide some indication as to whether Fury is ready to face either of the Klitschko brothers in the next 12 months. Kid Galahad and Chris Eubank Jr are also set to feature on the undercard in their latest bouts. Commentary by Dave Farrar and Richie Woodhall.
