Tyson Fury is ready to step it up a level at the Odyssey


Tyson Fury wants the world to witness his demolition job on Kevin Johnson at the Odyssey on December 1.

Fury is expecting the biggest test of career when he faces former WBC World heavyweight title challenger Johnson - but uncle and coach Peter Fury - says Tyson will have too much for his American opponent.

“Johnson is a world class fighter, this is no longer domestic level fighters, he’s a couple of steps up from anyone Tyson has ever fought before.

“He’s a strong guy with his own world title aspirations so Tyson has to be ready for a hard night.

“And we’re looking forward to going to Belfast, the fans there have always given Tyson a great reception.

“And they are going to see a great fight between two world class heavyweights with Tyson coming out on top,” added the trainer.

And Peter says Tyson is in the shape of his life for fight.

“Tyson couldn’t be in better shape. He has had great sparring and I think a lot of people are going to be shocked by just how good he looks and the performance he gives.

“It’s going to be a world-class performance and every other fighter in the heavyweight division will see that.

“I have been very pleased with the way Tyson has dedicated himself and after beating Johnson he will be ready for Vitali or Wladimir Klitschko or anyone else for that matter.

“Next year is going to be a huge year for Tyson.

“He’s the best heavyweight in the world right now,” he added.
