Dereck Chisora vs. Kevin Johnson: Head-to-Toe Breakdown of Both Fighters

This weekend is the first opportunity of the year to see Britain's premier heavyweights—Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury are back in action on the same bill.

Both face American opposition: Fury squares off against journeyman Joey Abell, and in the more competitive bout, Chisora faces former world title challenger Kevin Johnson.

Chisora fought four times in 2013 on the rebound from his fifth-round TKO defeat to David Haye in 2012. Winning all of those contests, he has put himself back into frame for another world title shot.

Promoter Frank Warren intends for him to fight Fury in the summer in what promises to be a popular and lucrative fight, so the Finchley fighter can't afford any mistakes against Johnson.

Johnson makes his third trip to the U.K., having lost a Prizefighter final to Tor Hamer in 2012. He also dropped a wide decision to Tyson Fury in the same yearFury kept him at the end of a jab, and Johnson showed little desire to force a fight.

Here is a head-to-toe breakdown of Chisora vs. Johnson.
