If Tyson Fury and American opponent Kevin Johnson fight as well as they talk at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on Saturday night then boxing fans will witness one hell of a heavyweight punch up.
The pair came face to face earlier this week to publicize their WBC heavyweight title eliminator clash and Johnson,28-2-1-(13). drew first blood by stating: "I’m one of America’s greatest fighters who is coming to annihilate Tyson Fury.
"I’m destined to be the next heavyweight champion of the world. It’s going be like a college professor versus a student on Saturday night."
Fury, never one to be out trash talked, countered: "This guy should have his own TV show. He’s the best talker I’ve seen in my life but talking isn’t fighting. We’ll see where all the talking gets him on Saturday night."
