IMPRESSIVE: Tyson Fury out-classed Kevin Johnson

Have your say

Tyson Fury was not impressed by David Price’s demolition job on Matt Skelton in Liverpool on Friday night.

Price defended his British and Commonwealth titles against Skelton – stopping the veteran in the second round.

Fury – who beat Kevin Johnson on points at the Odyssey on Saturday night – was not convinced by his nemisis’ triumph.

“He beat a 50-year-old fighter! There is no comparison between my fight and David Price versus Matt Skelton.

“Johnson would beat Price, I have no doubts about that. This was a 50/50 fight, Price versus Skelton was not a 50/50 fight.

“I did not see the fight but Price has not changed since the amateurs.

“He is a typical European fighter. They march forward, throw a one-two and a left hook. They push weights and bulk up.

“They come forward and throw big shots – that is all they do,” he added.

And Fury says there is no comparison between Price and himself.

“Look there is a difference between a domestic level fight and a world class fighter.

“You can blow away some fat domestic level fighter or one that is on steroids. But you cannot do that to a world class fighter like Johnson.

“You have to set him up if he is a world class fighter.

“There is miles difference between a world class fighter and a domestic level fighter and you saw that here tonight,” added Fury.
